More than 1.3 million people die in road accidents worldwide every year, while a further 50 million are injured. However, it’s not just the number of accidents, but also developments such as vehicle electrification and autonomous mobility (connected cars), as well as rules and legal regulations, that are leading to increased requirements in terms of vehicle safety and are driving forward market penetration.
The overarching goal is Vision Zero, i.e. a safe transport system in which there are no longer any accidents, deaths or injuries. To achieve this, more than just good brakes are needed. Occupant safety for all road users, manage vehicle motion and above all anticipatory, preventive safety functions, are an important step toward this goal. “Safety and Motion” is becoming a vital factor for the success of a vehicle and safety products are becoming dedicated elements in future server-based architectures. And safety is by no means a privilege for a few premium models but will be guaranteed for all vehicles.
