Forward Collision Warning (FCW)

Status Indicator:
PAST Project

Project Name: Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
Project Team: CAMP (Ford Motor Company and General Motors)
Timeframe: February 1996 – March 1999
Sponsor(s): NHTSA
Synopsis: The FCW Project was conducted to define and develop key pre-competitive enabling elements of FCW systems. The elements included the definition of specific crash types that an FCW system would address, the resulting minimum functional requirements for such a system, and objective test procedures for evaluating the extent to which a particular system design provided the desired functionality. The establishment of these key elements enhanced consistent countermeasure system implementation across manufacturers. This resulted in improved customer understanding and acceptance and helped to accelerate the implementation of FCW systems.
