Swedish Vehicle Industry: 

Swedish Vehicle Industry 1.5% of the world car production 20% of the world truck production 15% of Swedish exports or USD 23 billion Employs 140,000 people Volvo Cars and PAG R&D center (Ford) Volvo Trucks (Renault Truck, Mack, Nissan Diesel) Saab Automobile (GM) Scania (largest owner is Volkswagen) Home to Autoliv, Haldex, SKF and SSAB More than 1,000 other suppliers


Volvo Cars Ford R&D center for safety, electronics, telematics Ford R&D center for hybrid car technologies Volvo Car Safety Center opened in 2000.  Saab Automobile GM R&D center for safety, HMI, telematics, cabrios, chassis system and turbo engines Volvo Trucks R&D center for Volvo Truck, Renault Truck, Mack Scania R&D center for all Scania technologies Autoliv R&D center for safety systems Center for Automotive R&D

Technology Hot Spot: 

Technology Hot Spot First production of fly-by-wire fighters for unstable fly mode in subsonic speed Pioneer in wireless and mobile communication systems Premium car developer and leadership in heavy truck design Technology areas of importance for intelligent vehicle design

Intelligent Safety Key Areas: 

Intelligent Safety Key Areas Vehicle safety Electronics platform design (Autosar) Communication platform design (Telematics) Knowledge available through Swedish consultant companies!

Great Tradition in Passive Safety: 

Great Tradition in Passive Safety Three-point seat belt (Volvo-1958) Seatbelts as standard feature (Saab-1962) Side impact protection (Saab, 1972) Airbags for trucks (Volvo, 1994) World's first side impact air bags (Volvo/Autoliv, 1995) Front underrun protection system, (Scania, 1996) Inflatable curtain for side impact head protection (Volvo/Autoliv, 1998) First active head restraint (Saab, 1998) First anti-whiplash seat (Volvo/Autoliv,1998) Whiplash protection system for rear-seat (Autoliv,1999)

IVSS Program Impaired Drivers Speed (Sense, Alert & Respond) Crashworthiness & Biomechanics Sensor-rich Embedded Systems Communication Platforms & Digital Road Maps Dependable & Fault Tolerant Systems Drugs Alcohol Distraction Drowsiness Road Conditions Performance Traffic Management Obstacle Detection IVSS Project Areas Injury Measurement Pedestrian Protection Body & Chassis


Major factors causing fatalities Drivers under the influence of alcohol: >50% of accidents with life-threatening and fatal injuries Drowsy drivers and drivers with reduced performance: 25% of all accidents Vulnerable road users (pedestrians and bicyclists): 30% of all killed in traffic accidents Road intersections and road junctions: 30-60% of all accidents with personal injuries High velocity differentials or insufficient distance: 25% of all fatal accidents Night time driving: 56% of fatal accidents occur at night or in wet conditions Source: EU-commission & Autoliv 2004


Best solutions for major problems Speed (20% of fatalities) ISA 30% of speed-related fatalities Speed Camera Control 25% Alcohol and drugs (16%) Alcohol Interlock 36% of related fatalities Seat belt (16%) Seat belt reminder 60% of related fatalities Fatigue (10%) ISA 20% of related crashes Driver condition monitoring 10% Meeting (10%) Emergency braking 60% of related crashes Pedestrians (7%) Night vision 40% of related crashes ISA 20%
