Collision Warning System
The ultimate goal of crash avoidance systems is to cut down on the number of traffic fatalities, which have steadily increased in the last few years. Over forty percent of fatal accidents result from the vehicle leaving the road, causing research engineers to focus their efforts on warning drivers if they are about to run off the roadway. Government funded research has increased significantly in this area, but there are no plans to mandate the use of these systems.
