17 April 1995 Collision avoidance safety technology: the least "bang" for the buck
Author Affiliations +
Mature and emerging commercial technologies for crash detection, and vehicle driver's control aids are evaluated to assess their near term potential for use on military vehicles. The conclusion is that Collision Warning Systems, show potential for reducing the frequency of some of the common types of military vehicle accidents, especially during formation driving or convoys. To determine benefits, an emphasis is placed on the potential for projected cost savings realized from fewer accidents and personnel injuries. This approach best illustrates the advantages of trying to incorporate off -the- shelf commercial products for military use. If such a safety product could reduce overall operating expense , its introduction may be warranted without fortification of the component to meet Military Specifications.
