New equipment for on road experiments of automatic decelerations
ABRAM WP3 target decelerations.
The new equipment for the tests of automatic decelerations with volunteer riders has just arrived.
The tests will involve 10 participants who will experience automatic mild decelerations while riding along a straight path (up to 40 km/h).
The automatic decelerations will be up to 0.3 g and will be produced by cutting the engine power via remote control at a random time. The participants will report about their experience with pseudo-autonomous decelerations. This is a first step to show the feasibility of unmanned emergency decelerations that may reduce the impact speed in case of an inevitable collision.
