This talk will first discuss why NHTSA selected each of these three technologies for inclusion in the CAT-NCAP. For each technology, a brief description will be given of how the technology works followed by NHTSA and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) estimates of their effects on automotive safety. The talk will also provide a summary of backover prevention technologies. There will be a discussion of why, due to low benefits, backover prevention technology was not included in CAT-NCAP. Finally, the talk will conclude with a discussion of NHTSA's plans for the future enhancement of the CAT-NCAP program.
