The uptake and expected impact of Electronic Stability Program (ESC) amongst the Australian passenger vehicle fleet
Steinhardt, Dale A., Wills, Andrew R., & Rakotonirainy, Andry (2007) The uptake and expected impact of Electronic Stability Program (ESC) amongst the Australian passenger vehicle fleet. In 2007 Road Safety: Research, Policing, Education Conference, 17-19th October, Melbourne.
Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is an in-vehicle active control system which acts in loss of control situations to stabilise a vehicle. Several studies have shown the road safety benefits of ESP in international contexts. However, little consideration has been given for factors which may inhibit the uptake and potential effectiveness of ESP amongst the Australian vehicle fleet. This study highlights some of these potential factors including the rate of uptake of ESP into the Australian new vehicle market, purchasing patterns, driver behaviour, culture and the media. Conclusions are drawn in terms of future research directions and good public policy to maximise the effects of ESP in Australia.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
