UTC Mission: to advance transportation expertise and technology through technology transfer

Bryan Reimer Presents at Euro NCAP Road Safety Conference

Sep 18, 2017

UTC Associate Director Bryan Reimer spoke at the “In Pursuit of Vision Zero” road safety conference, sponsored by Euro NCAP, discussing research connected to the Advanced Vehicle Technology Consortium and other topics related to automated driving.

Dr. Reimer begins: “I come to tell you that perhaps technology evolution is not going to solve the future of driving in the ways that many would like to predict. Ninety-plus percent of accidents relate to human behavior. As long as we as humans are a core component of vehicle transport, and have a role in the system, we have a responsibility to consider how the human may relate to this complex social and technical system.”
