    The safety impacts of 12 in-vehicle safety systems IVSS were studied to provide impact estimates for a benefit cost analysis. An exhaustive method for the analyses was developed. The results showed that IVSS have considerable potential to improve traffic safety. With the assumed market penetration in 2020, the most prominent systems included Electronic stability control, Speed alert, eCall and Lane-keeping support. It seems to be important to develop several systems in parallel.
