VDT Black-Box Technology

  1. 1. Vehicle Dynamics Technology (VDT) Technology for future road safety devices
  2. 2. Vehicle Dynamics Technology (VDT) <ul><li>Abbreviations: </li></ul><ul><li>EDR : Event Data Recorder, device installed in vehicle to record relevant data few seconds before, and few seconds after the crash; </li></ul><ul><li>“ Future EDR” : Defined by National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) as an expansion of existing EDR technology with new safety data elements to be collected (yaw rate, roll angle, 3D orientation of vehicle at the moment of impact, …), and broader definition of event; </li></ul><ul><li>ACN : Automatic Collision Notification, notification automatically sent wireless to emergency services in the event of crash, with estimation of crash severity and brief description of vehicle resting position. </li></ul>“ FUTURE EDR and Vehicle Road Safety”
  3. 3. Vehicle Dynamics Technology (VDT) <ul><li>VDT : technology platform for FUTURE, low cost vehicle road safety devices ( “Black Box” ) </li></ul>“ FUTURE EDR and Vehicle Road Safety”
  4. 4. VDT Application Domains <ul><li>The aftermarket VDT </li></ul><ul><li>black box: </li></ul><ul><li>12 x 8 x 2.5 cm </li></ul>
  5. 5. VDT Technology Features <ul><li>6 Degrees of Freedom (based on low-cost MEMS sensors) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology based on kinematics of the vehicle </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Position of the vehicle is always known </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Accurate interpolation and dead-reckoning of GPS </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Vehicle velocity vector is always known </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Next level of accuracy for instant events </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unique capability: automatic 3D trajectory reconstruction </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sophisticated real-time event detection </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Automatic event detection , analysis and objective reporting , based on expanded definition of event (not only crash!) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Two layer of algorithms, flexible event detection tuning </li></ul></ul>“ FUTURE EDR and Vehicle Road Safety”
