The National Transportation Safety Board and the National Safety Council on Oct. 27 will live-stream an all-day conference exploring the role of advanced driver assistance systems in pursuing the goal of eliminating crashes.

The event will be held at the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center in Washington, D.C., from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EDT) on Thursday, Oct. 27. The link to the webcast ( will become available shortly before the event begins.

The NTSB and NSC said they have identified the need for a broader discussion on advanced driver assistance systems. More and more vehicles are equipped with these potentially life-saving technologies, but drivers are often confused about how they work.

The expert panel and roundtable event, Reaching Zero Crashes: A Dialogue on the Role of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, will convene researchers, government officials, media, association representatives, and industry leaders.

Topics will include:

  • The capabilities, benefits, and availability of current technologies, such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and blind spot detection
  • Human factors considered during development
  • Public education, training, and promotion efforts related to these technologies.
