 Developing Systems to test Autonomous Emergency Braking

Automomous Emergency Braking is a new kind of safety technology - one that aims to prevent crashes or reduce the speed of impact using sensors that allow the vehicle to look ahead.

This new safety technology calls for new ways to assess it. At CASR that means getting out of the lab and onto the track.

See the video showing what we are doing.

 Do you work in agriculture within South Australia and ride a quad bike for work purposes?

Quad bikes play an important role in agriculture but in recent years the number of deaths and injuries associated with their use has increased significantly. We are conducting a research project into the use of quad bikes in South Australia. We would really like to talk to you about your experiences riding a quad bike as part of the study. This will involve a short interview at a place that is convenient for you. We are happy to come to your workplace/farm/home.

For more details, please download the information sheet.

If you would like to participate in this important study, please call the Centre for Automotive Safety Research at the University of Adelaide on 1800 043678 or email:
