Title: Report of the Seminar on Advancing Speed Assistance Systems
Organisation: Global NCAP & Euro NCAP
Date uploaded: 25th October 2017
Date published/launched: September 2017
As a contribution to the Week, Global NCAP, Euro NCAP and Australasian NCAP held
a seminar in London, on the role of vehicle-based advanced systems to assist drivers to drive within posted speed limits. The purpose of the seminar was to examine the state of the art of current speed assist system (SAS) technologies and how to encourage their greater use in vehicle fleets worldwide.
A major focus of the discussions was the role of SAS in New Car Assessment Programmes (NCAPs) and how consumer awareness of the benefits of these systems can be encouraged.
This report summarises the issues raised during the seminar and proposes practical recommendations to assist NCAPs that may consider including SAS in their future rating systems.
