Jordan Silberling

Jordan has been with DRI for over 14 years. He started his career as a controls engineer in the aerospace industry. He is currently involved in the development and application of ADAS and AVS assessment methodology and test device development, including the Soft Car 360. This has also included the control and algorithm development for the Guided Soft Target crash test system, and the development and application of accident reconstruction for evaluating ADAS effectiveness. He has a passion for making automobiles safer and more reliable by focusing on advanced systems for safety, driver assistance, automation and handling.


Application of an extended Collision Avoidance Capability metric to collision

AV developers seek metrics to quantify the safety of their vehicles. The Collision Avoidance Capability (CAC) metric evaluates the ability of a vehicle to avoid a collision in all potential scenarios. The CAC calculation evaluates all possible courses of action within a vehicle’s performance limitations, including combinations of braking, accelerating and steering. When a potential conflict with another object is present, the CAC classifies all courses of action as either successful (avoiding a collision) or unsuccessful (resulting in a collision). The CAC metric has been applied to the results of collision-imminent braking NCAP tests for several vehicles.
