The introduction of the IIHS Small Overlap test configuration implies a more se-vere and critical load case at the structural parts of the vehicle that need more improvement.
In order, for consumers, to have a better understanding of vehicle’s safety status, currently each of the NCAP ratings is applying the philosophy of an “Overall Rating”
The rapid growth of Electric Vehicles (EV’s) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV’s) has increased the concern that the relative silence of EV's will result in an increased risk to pedestrian safety.
The KID-SHELL project aims to design and develop a protection system addressed to children who are travelling as PTW passengers, since motorcycles are by far the most dangerous means of transport.
Recently, Euro NCAP has implemented a wide set of changes in its protocols so as to increase the severity of its load cases and improve the biofidelity of the anthropomorphic test devices that are used in the tests.
Vehicle simulation models are essential throughout the development process in the automotive industry.
The introduction of the new NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) oblique test configuration presents a new and critical load case that manufacturers are on the way to solving.
The ASSESS project was a European Commission co-funded project that aimed to develop harmonized and standardized assessment procedures for collision mitigation and avoidance systems.
Pedestrians and cyclists are the most unprotected road users and their injury risk in case of accidents is significantly higher than for other road users.
