A Recent Study: Anti-collision Technology can reduce 21% traffic accident

According to US media report, a recent study from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) finds that vehicle anti-collision system can significantly reduce traffic accident rate.

According to US media report, a recent study from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) finds that vehicle anti-collision system can significantly reduce traffic accident rate.

“Lane departure early warning system and blind-spot early warning system will save countless lives. And statistics indicate that early warning system does work,” says Jessica Cicchino, research vice president of IIHS. Cicchino analyzes over 5000 accidents occurred in 2015, which could be avoided with the help of lane departure early warning system and blind-spot early warning system, and vehicles which were installed with early warning system still involved with accidents. He finds that vehicles, which are installed with early warning system, reduce 21 percent of the single vehicle accident, side impact and frontal collision accident rate. More importantly, the anti-collision technology reduces 21 percent of the similar accident rate.

IIHS said that if all passenger cars in 2015 are equipped with a lane departure warning system, then this will avoid 55,000 casualties occurred. However, although these data can make people aware of the importance of using a collision avoidance system, many drivers may shut down their warning systems in their vehicles due to the bother. "Some of the system's tips are to make a tone, which may cause some drivers to be bored," he said. "This closes the system."

Comparing this study results to a 2015 study on US truck fleets and Sweden’s Volvo, IIHS finds that lane departure early warning system reduces about 50 percent of the collision accident rate. “These systems avoid the occurrence of the most fatal accident because they provide drivers with response time to avoid collision,” says Cicchino.

If all the passenger vehicles were installed with lane departure early warning system in 2015, 55,000 accidents would have avoided. “Some systems warn drivers by giving out voice warning, which may make drivers so bored that they shut down these systems,” says Cicchino.

Though 6 million vehicle collision accidents occurred in US in 2015, the adoption rate of anti-collision system is always low. Cicchino says that only 6 percent of the vehicles sold in 2017 are installed with lane departure early warning system, and only 9 percent of the vehicle types on the market are installed with blind-spot early warning system. Though 57 percent of the vehicles are provided with these technologies when on sale, these technologies are usually included in security services package or in more high-end configuration, which means the cost of purchasing vehicle increases by several thousand dollars. 

While 57 percent of the cars are available at the time of sale, these technologies are often incorporated into security service packages or higher-end configurations, increasing car costs by thousands of dollars. However, the car aftermarket has a considerable part of the cost-effective anti-collision system, such as CareDrive brand lane departure warning system AWS650, can detect 100 meters ahead of the vehicles and lanes, can take 20 photos per second, with the front The distance between the vehicle and the road lane, through the analysis, can predict rear-end, lane deviation, speeding and other risks, to help the driver to respond in a timely manner to prevent the occurrence of security incidents.
