Forward Collision Warning Testing (FCW)


Forward Collision Warning systems (FCWS) have been proven to actively avoid or drastically reduce the severity of accidents. They work by monitoring the road, providing the driver with sufficient warning to change direction or apply the brakes when entering a predefined threshold to the vehicle in front.

Validating the performance of these systems is therefore vital, with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stating that systems must activate before the time to collision reaches a minimum of 2.1 seconds.
