Dominik Schuster, VP Vehicle Safety, BMW Group

Abstract: The technological evolution, or to a certain extent revolution, in the automotive industry poses new unprecedented challenges, especially for vehicle safety. Especially in the area of advanced driver assistance systems, the testing methods and the proof of real world effectiveness is much more system-bound than in the “traditional” passive safety sector. Furthermore, the human factor, again in contrast to passive safety, leads to yet another level of complexity. Therefore, it should be the endeavour of OEMs and authorities to find common answers to central questions like "How do we evaluate new assistance systems and why should we focus on certain systems/technologies and not others?" Communication formats such as the "FISITA Intelligent Safety Conference China 2021" are an excellent exchange platform for discussing these complex issues.
