Every driver is familiar with risky situations. Head-on, side-impact, and rear-end collisions in which the occupants are seriously injured or killed happen too often. It is hard to see anything positive about such moments, but at least you can learn from them. Crashes and dangerous situations – near misses in particular – provide a lot of information. Analysis of this data can help prevent collisions or reduce their consequences in the future. At ZF, this research is studied, and lessons learned are embedded in the DNA of the company’s active, passive, and integrated safety and security systems.
