Crash avoidance technologies to be demonstrated.

18 April 2011

The UK’s ITS Centre for Excellence for Transport Telematics and Technology for Sustainable Mobility, innovITS, has announced that Thatcham - the UK Insurance Industry Repair Research Centre - will be presenting a ride and drive event on May 17, 2011, in which some of the latest vehicles equipped with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) systems will be demonstrated. Thatcham has chosen to hold this event at the center’s ADVANCE ‘city circuit’, reflecting the facility’s pre-eminent position as a global centre for intelligent transport systems (ITS) development. The event, which is being advertised by Thatcham under the title ‘Can you Crash it? No you can’t’, will provide members of the media and the automotive, insurance and crash repair industries with the opportunity to drive and experience a new range of vehicles equipped with the very latest generation of AEB technology.
