|Abstract: ||Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and
alternative instantiations of intelligent vehicle control systems aspire to support the driver in
controlling the vehicle and alleviate the incidents that would lead to collisions and injury.
This paper resets to zero and based on data from the On-The-Spot (OTS) accident study
challenges the capability of active safety systems to aim at the sources of longitudinal control
failures. The road user interactions file from 3024 road accidents in Thames Valley and
Nottinghamshire in UK was analysed. Interactions where “failure to stop” or “sudden
braking” is the precipitating factor are analysed and the main contributory factors are
identified. Some of those factors are addressed by current and coming technologies – like low
road friction, excessive speed and close following, but significantly neglect to address other
common ones – like distraction, failure to judge other person’s path, failure to look, and
“look but did not see” instances.|
