Cover Story – Active and Passive Safety

Predictive Safety – Possibilities of a Perception-based Activation of Safety Systems

Authors of the article:

How can pre-crash systems pave the way for the integration of active and passive safety technology? Holistic intervention strategies that combine active and passive safety can be a solution for this. BMW and ZF are working on making automated driving safer by evaluating environmental sensing technology at an early stage and intervening actuators already in the pre-crash phase.

Cover Story – Interview

New test positions for a real crash event

Christian Cavell and Dr. Nils Lübbe; Autoliv

Authors of the article: Reichenbach

Safety concepts for passenger car occupants and pedestrians are becoming increasingly complex, but also better. At the same time, digital services are important for achieving Vision Zero. Christian Cavell and Dr. Nils Lübbe from Autoliv explain in this interview what innovative safety, brake and airbag solutions look like and why the Swedes have set up the new “Mobility Safety Solutions” department for the non-automotive sector.

Cover Story – Active and Passive Safety

Steering Actuator for Safety-critical Systems

Authors of the article: Mahle

Mahle develops a failure-proof steering actuator that meets the world’s highest safety requirements according to ASIL D. Part of the double fault-tolerant system is a five-phase motor with an intelligent controller that uses software to react adaptively to errors that occur. Advantages with regard to the degrees of freedom in the development of the vehicles as well as the safety of passengers can be identified.

Development – Homologation

Cybersecurity for Automated Vehicles

Authors of the article: Escrypt

The technology of automated driving at levels 4 and 5 is coming and aims to increase safety in road traffic. Achieving this goal will in part depend on how well the automated systems in connected vehicles are protected against cyberattacks. This aspect of automotive cybersecurity calls for new thinking and broader action, Escrypt, states, in order to put software development on a solid basis for vehicle homologation.

Development – Homologation

Approval Requirements for Automated and Connected Vehicles

Authors of the article: TÜV Nord

Since September 2020, there has been a new Framework Regulation of the European Union for the approval of driver assistance systems. The extension of the General Safety Regulation is planned for 2022. Consequently, the test processes for the homologation of passenger cars must also be reconsidered, as TÜV Nord explains here, taking into account automated driving and cyber security.
