The automotive aftermarket industry’s first active safety performance study and test program for Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (P-AEB) are documented in a new vehicle technology report entitled “Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and Aftermarket-Modified Vehicle Compliance.” P-AEB is an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) designed to help mitigate or prevent certain collisions with vehicles and pedestrians.
The Specialty Equipment Market Association, SCA Performance Group—a division of Fox Factory, Transportation Research Center Inc. (TRC), asTech and the Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI) worked together to conduct the study and test program. It is the first in a series of white papers to help automotive performance aftermarket manufacturers customize with confidence by providing information, tools, practices, procedures and resources to help ensure that their products can be successfully integrated with the latest factory-installed ADAS technologies.
ADAS technologies are the gateway and foundation to many of the advanced vehicle technologies being deployed by automakers today, according to John Waraniak, vice president of vehicle technology at SEMA. “Understanding how ADAS technologies, software and sensors function is an integral component for the future of successful, complete and safe aftermarket modifications, installations and vehicle builds.”
Having access to the latest information and increasing our collective knowledge of how to apply sensor recalibration procedures for collision-repaired vehicles to aftermarket-modified vehicles is speeding the development and adoption of ADAS compliance tools, practices and solutions in the SEMA community.
Michael McSweeney, president and general manager of SCA Performance Group, said “it’s imperative for SCA Performance Group to be on the leading edge of calibrating lifted truck ADAS sensors and demonstrating functional safety and regulatory compliance so we can ensure the safety and reliability to the end users driving our vehicles, to the manufacturers and to the insurance companies who insure these vehicles and drivers. We have committed a tremendous amount of focus and resources to developing ADAS solutions that we can share with the industry to help ensure the sustainability of the performance aftermarket industry.”
