Samenvatting The UDV (German Insurers Accident Research) worked on the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems project for the GDV Motor Insurance Loss Prevention Commission (Kommission Kraftfahrt Schadenverhütung) from 2007 to 2010. The aim of the project was to determine the potential safety benefits of selected advanced driver assistance systems. For the first time, car accidents involving damage but not personal injury were also investigated. The findings were essentially that modern advanced driver assistance systems can have a positive effect on the damage, casualties and accidents examined (accidents involving personal injury and at least € 15,000 total claim value). For car accidents, the (generic) advanced driver assistance systems were found to have theoretical safety potential values ranging from 2% (for a blind spot detection system) to almost 45% (for an emergency brake assist system). For trucks the values ranged from 2% (for a lane departure warning system) to 12% (for an emergency brake assist system) and for buses from around 1% (for a lane departure warning system) to 15% (for an emergency brake assist system).Car accidents involving damage to property only (third-party and fully comprehensive motor insurance) were investigated with respect to the benefits of parking assist systems and brake assist systems. The resulting analyses showed that 31% of third-party property damage claims could be avoided with an intelligent parking assist system and a further 22% could be avoided with a brake assist system. In the case of fully comprehensive claims, the potential safety benefits of the two systems were not as great but still considerable. (Author/publisher)
