Recently, each country’s political efforts and nongovernmental researchs have been continued world widely to induce development and propagation of driver assist active safety system. In case of Korea’s domestic situation, so far as technical development of the related systems is concerned, although it sounds like it’s too late compared to other countries(European, Japan and US), Korea is now concentrating energies to enlarge market penetration and correspond to international trend through a assessment standard establishment.
As part of an this endeavor, a research was organized what is called ‘Development of Safety Assessment Technology of Advanced Safety Vehicle’ that is being carried out with 3-step approach(1st step : 2009~2012, 2nd step : 2012~2015, 3rd step : 2015~2018), and as the 1st step being closed, safety assessment requirement of a Commercial vehicle AEBS & LDWS including passenger vehicle ACC system was drawn, and the 2nd step is now being in progress.
Presently, in its 2nd step, a study to establish safety standard for passenger vehicle AEBS & LKAS is being carried out and, after 2015, assessment standard for the related items will be drawn with keeping pace with international test standard and guideline e.g. NCAP
This study considered, in addition to the technical development and standardization procedure of advanced active safety system, how it will be reflected to Korea’s system, and such a political approach will lead domestic industries including customer to be interested with the active safety system and help the result to be utilized as an internal standard
