With more than 1 billion automotive vehicles operating worldwide and 3,287 people killed by crashes daily, vehicle safety has become more important than ever. More than 90 percent of all accidents are caused by driver error, therefore decreasing the human influence on driving can significantly reduce the number of casualties.
Implementing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is the first step towards achieving full autonomy (level 5), a situation in which the driver is no longer needed to operate the vehicle. Siemens is fully equipped to perform all sorts of ADAS tests, from regulatory to developmental. Our dedicated team performs consumer tests for passenger vehicles: for example, those devised by the European New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). We are also fully equipped to perform all ADAS tests conforming to current United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) regulations for trucks and buses, such as ECE Regulation 130 lane departure warning system (LDWS) and ECE Regulation 131 advanced emergency braking system (AEBS). Additionally, all our ADAS activities are International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 10725 accredited.
