Automotive vehicles clearly bring great value to society, providing a cost-effective means of transporting goods and people all over the world. Unfortunately, there are a corresponding number of automotive accidents and fatalities which continue to increase worldwide, prompting the World Health Organization to project automotive-related deaths as the number three cause of death by the year 2010, up from number nine in 2002. Together, the auto industry has been working with governments around the world, from both a regulatory and technology standpoint, to reduce the number of automotive-related deaths. Through increased driver education and awareness of potential hazards, the automotive industry is striving to promote accident avoidance and prevention to increase overall automotive safety. Active safety and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are the primary focus of current efforts to implement improved safety in vehicles.
