“Many new vehicles offer advanced crash avoidance features. The systems started out as options on a few luxury models and have steadily spread to more of the fleet. Advanced technologies assist the driver with warnings or automatic braking to help avoid or mitigate a crash. Advances also are being made in intelligent transportation systems that allow vehicles to communicate with one another or with road infrastructure to help avoid crashes.” (IIHS, HLDI). In recent years, much analysis has been done regarding the impact these technologies can have on the insurance industry as well as public safety and policy. In this session, the experts will provide an update on the rapidly changing technology advancements, the spread into the fleet of cars, and the potential impacts to insurance that should be considered by actuaries.
