Abstract: Reducing the number of people killed in road accidents is an important and challenging task. Beside other aspects improving the vehicle safety helps to achieve this goal. A lot of effort is being made by car manufacturers all over the world to improve the so-called safety performance of newly developed vehicles.

This workshop will give a short introduction to vehicle safety and relevant restraint systems with a focus on the deployment of the restraint systems (“airbag sensing”) used to improve the protection of people (e.g. vehicle occupants) involved in a vehicle accident. Also, special focus will be on broad capabilities for simulating autonomous vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems — everything from high-fidelity, physics-based sensor modeling to ISO26262 and AUTOSAR compliant embedded software and human-machine interface development tools.

The following topics will be covered:

Introduction to Vehicle Safety

Engineering Simulation for Safety
– Driving scenarios
– Virtual road test autonomous vehicles

Restraint Systems and Airbag Sensing
– Restraint Systems
– Introduction to Airbag Sensing
– Airbag Sensing (Calibration) Development
– The future of Airbag Sensing
– Lessons Learned (for real live)

Vehicle Dynamics and Crash Simulation Research

Future Trends
– The race to develop autonomous vehicles (AV)
– Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)
– Autonomous driving technology — involving radar, lidar, V2X communication, sensor fusion and deep learning
– Safe automated driving
