Prospective assessment of the effectiveness of autonomous emergency braking in car-to-cyclist accidents in France.

Conclusions: This study illustrates the potential benefits and limits of AEB-cyclist systems. High-end systems show acceptable effectiveness rates, but road safety performance strongly depends on external factors such as road surface conditions or has to be tuned in order to avoid unnecessary activations and driver discomfort. Limits of the system's everyday use (lack of maintenance, driver reaction time to collision warnings, etc.) were not taken into account, thus resulting in optimistic evaluations of AEB-cyclist effectiveness.

ConclusionSubstantial agreement exists among experts regarding many strong recommendations for the improvement of practice concerning the use of muscle relaxants and reversal agents during anaesthesia. In particular, the French Society of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care (SFAR) recommends the use of a device to monitor neuromuscular blockade throughout anaesthesia.
