Volvo presented a new model that improves active safety

Security researchers at Volvo Car Corporation has developed a new model of impact simulation to test the most recent active safety systems company designed to prevent collisions with pedestrians.

The most recent addition to the family of simulation models of impact was nicknamed Bob. Bob is medium in size and looks like the vast majority of pedestrian issues. By cons, it works differently from the rest of the models of the family: Bob is never sitting in a vehicle during a collision. Instead, it is he who may be reversed. Suspended a crane that can propel him into the field of vision - Bob can suddenly appear from behind a parked car or on a street corner - helping scientists to simulate realistic traffic scenarios and common.

The baffling behavior Bob is designed to challenge the most recent active safety system Volvo using a radar and cameras to recognize pedestrians who suddenly rush into the path of the vehicle. The system then applies the brakes if the driver does not react quickly enough.

Reduction or avoidance of collisions with pedestrians

"We are very confidence Bob in matters of development of our systems of active safety, although it would have been more overexcited he could develop a model that could move by itself, says Anders Eugensson, expert security Volvo Cars. Bob is also a child version of Bob junior and will be followed by a feminine version of the ultimate goal to help our researchers to develop systems avoidance of collisions with pedestrians. "
