A new Automotive World report presents expert insight into how next-generation mobility solutions will incorporate the auto industry’s attempts to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on the road.
Despite the huge advances that have been made in improving road safety and reducing road fatalities, the number of people globally each year who die or are seriously injured in road traffic incidents is still at a critical level. Rapidly evolving vehicle technology has the ability to significantly reduce the number of road traffic fatalities and serious injuries, and this has led to the concept of Vision Zero: in short, the elimination of vehicle-related deaths and serious injuries.
Some automakers are including zero emissions and even zero congestion in their Vision Zero strategies. This report focuses on safety, and explores the implications of Vision Zero from the perspectives of automakers, suppliers and safety organisation. The report opens with an exclusive contribution by Matthew Avery of Thatcham Research.
