Test methods for active safety functions to avoid accidents between cars and bicycles

Jan Jacobson et al.
2012

Paper belonging to the presentation 'Test methods for active safety functions to avoid accidents between cars and bicycles' held during the International Cycling Safety Conference on November 7th and 8th by Jan Jacobson of SP.

Road fatalities are reduced, but the number of bicyclists and pedestrians killed or severely in-jured is at an unchanged level. The introduction of active safety functions is believed to further reduce fatalities among car occupants. There are presently no active safety functions for pro-tecting bicyclists. Test methods will be a key enabler to show that novel safety functions for bi-cyclists have the possibility to reduce and mitigate accidents. The most relevant accident sce-narios must be identified. Test procedures and bicycle test targets are needed.
