Automatic emergency braking (AEB) is one of the most popular ADAS. The effectiveness of ADAS, which aim to reduce traffic accidents, is often assessed under test protocols. But test protocols are mostly identified in representative accident situations. The focus of this free webinar is a study that succeeded in reproducing an accident situation at intersections, by using driver error models in the traffic simulation. By comparing the simulation result with and without AEB, it was possible to quantitatively estimate the effect of AEB in actual traffic conditions.
