Abstract: New vehicle safety technologies continue to be developed. This report aims to assess the future impact of light vehicle safety technologies in Australia over the next 30 years. This report includes a literature review, consultation with experts regarding the possible trend in injury reduction over the next 30 years from AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) and V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle communication). The experts suggested that the most important emerging vehicle safety technologies are primary safety systems that provide increasing levels of autonomy, driver warnings and driver monitoring. AEB was consistently identified as having the most potential in the near future, and this was confirmed in the review of literature. Results demonstrated the importance of introducing new safety technologies as early and as quickly as possible. The experts suggested this could be achieved through mandating the installation of safety technologies, reducing insurance premiums for vehicles with safety technologies, and encouraging their uptake through consumer information and new vehicle assessment programs.
