Added Value for Electrified Vehicles through Enhanced Active Safety
Paper i proceeding, 2017

The possibility of using electric drives to improve safety is presented. Several opportunities were identified and discussed briefly. In particular, two use cases are analyzed in detail: first to accelerate the lead vehicle to prevent or mitigate a rear-end collision and second, to control speed for mitigation of collision risk with oncoming vehicles during evasive maneuvers. Significant safety benefit was estimated in both cases and hence, a strong opportunity is seen for adding safety related value to electrified vehicles at little extra cost.
