The Dead Man's Switch: How Anton Yelchin's life could have been saved technology connections heat pump

by alsaCEMusic



It’s not hard to make things safer. But sometimes people don’t think about the tools they already have. With a simple reprogramming of an engine computer and perhaps with the addition of a sensor or two, the Jeep that killed Anton Yelchin could have saved his life. If cars were able to detect that their driver had exited, accidental rolling of a car could be a thing of the past. If we’re lucky, it will quickly become one. .

It depends on if the WK2 uses CCD or CAN for the airbags.

CCD (Chrysler Crash Detection) is a bus designed for airbags only, while CAN is used for everything.

Part of the issue was also that the mailbox was not properly mounted. Mailboxes are mounted on break-away poles, while Anton's was inside a brick wall study enough for a 5000lb Grand Cherokee to back against and still not break away.

Another issue is reverse lockout. Federal law requires some action to shift into reverse from Park or Neutral (PRNDL is also mandated by law.). On older vehicles, you had typically to pull the column shifter forward or push a button on a console shifter to shift into reverse, but not neutral.

My Benz automatically shifts into park if I open the door with the car in drive

I could see seat pressure sensor could be potentially problematic for us short, lightweights that need special cushioning. However, having the driver door open at low speed could put it in park.
Most if all cars will chime or make some indication if the door is opened with the keys in the ignition.
That Prius problem was the carpet getting dislodged from its fastener and scooting under the accelerator. I'm sure two foot drivers hate the new interlock, but those driving behind such drivers sure would appreciate it.

I don't think any car has steering wheel disengaged from the steering mechanism, rather the power steering is electrical with a torque sensor detecting the wheel being turned, and a motor trying to negate the torque. In this way you still have "drive by wire" yet can still mechanically steer should the electrical system fail. Tough, yes but still doable.
Almost the same with ABS brakes. The natural state of the brake valves allow at least one pair of the brakes operate hydraulically with the brake pedal. At least these two factors are how the 2004 Prius was designed and makes sense for fail safe safety.

I could see this being very useful in police vehicles as well. Sometimes they don't think of it, or don't have the time to put the car in park. Since police get out very quickly, it's one less thing to think about, and it keeps a very heavy cruiser from going where it pleases.

Butt, door and seatbelt sensors. That's how you solve The Runaway car problem. Like you said it's just a matter of writing some code

No, he was killed by Dodge. They literally wouldn't stay in park. Idk what he expected buying that pile of junk.

Don't deflect blame from those cretins.

I just wanted to mention that the Nissan Leaf (at least the 2019 SL+ I have) does this if the door is open and the driver seatbelt is unbuckled. I found out completely by accident when I was trying to show my friend the reverse chime. I had my door open, and had applied the parking brake; I held the brake pedal and tried to shift into reverse, only to have the car immediately shift back into park. After some fiddling seeing what triggered that (I had assumed seat switch) I realized that holding the door switch allowed it to stay in gear. I did some testing and found out that it will stay in gear as long as either the driver door is closed, or the driver seatbelt is buckled. I have not yet tested if it will do that while the car is moving, for fear of damaging the transmission.

Edit: it will also shift into park if you turn the car off while in gear, though it won't apply the parking brake, presumably to allow a vehicle that won't turn on to be towed by lifting the front wheels (the leaf is front wheel drive)

The problem is, this only affects you… you see the rest of us have our parking breaks SEPERATE from the gears, which is the sensible thing to do… but you guys are lazy/dumb or whatever and cant handle too many separate controls 😀

Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge have some of the worst reliability, safety and longevity rankings of any western automotive manufacturer. They are even banned or highly advised against purchasing in some countries due to major safety deficits. They used to be known for reliability, but have really dropped the ball the past two decades. Pretty sad to see tbh. Jeep used to be a symbol of just ruggedness and reliability…now it’s just garbage.

AND THEN YOU GET THE "HANDS FREE" MESSAGE "HOW MUCH IS IT WORTH FOR YOU TO MAKE THAT MANEUVER???" … AND with a sinking feeling in your heart, stomach, or soul… you realize the system has been "hacked"… DO you pay or not??? {Don't forget you're special emergency Bank Validation Express Account… right… RIGHT???}

Time is ticking on all this "drive by wire" crap…

Frankly, as much as I like tech' to make life easier, more efficient, more advantageous… etc… I'll take the air-cooled brutish machine of a motorcycle, where I get to respond… "Hahahahahahaha…. F*** yourself, dipsh*t…. Watch THIS!!!"

….but maybe (somehow???) that's just me. ;o)

The 2020 Acadia, and I assume most Chevy/gmc vehicles with the push button prndl will automatically go in to park if you shut the engine off. I'll experiment with it and see what else will make it park.

Vehicles should have radar/sonar/lidar safety systems that prevent collision with people or objects regardless of whether there is a driver present.

It also has a brake pedal switch in non cruise control cars so it knows to activate the abs system

All he needed to do is use the handbrake ( Parking brake) on, I have noticed when living in the states that you Americans do not use this item when parking. I never use the transmission in park to secure the car I always use the handbrake. ALWAYS.

Interesting idea, and you're right about all of it. However, personally, the fact that modern vehicles are "by wire" is why I do my best to not own anything new. Just the hands on mechanic in me.
