Image result for ANCAPANCAP safety ratings are published for a range of new passenger, sports utility (SUV) and light commercial vehicles (LCV) entering the Australian and New Zealand markets, using a rating system of 0 to 5 stars. ANCAP star ratings indicate the level of safety a vehicle provides for occupants and pedestrians in the event of a crash, as well as its ability — through technology — to avoid or minimise the effects of a crash.

Since 1993, ANCAP has published independent safety ratings for thousands of new vehicle makes, models and variants. These independent safety ratings are used to compare the relative safety between vehicles of similar size, and have become a critical factor in vehicle selection for private and fleet buyers.

DriveSafe DriveAware has excellent sensitivity and specificity and accurately predicts which patients require an on-road assessment, and those most likely to pass or fail such an assessment. This information allows doctors and other health and rehabilitation professionals to make objective decisions when advising their patients regarding driving.
