EPOCh project

Development of new child dummy successfully finished

The project has specified, produced and validated a state of the art child dummy (Q10), representing older children travelling in vehicles. In addition protocols and test procedures have been expanded to carry out impact tests for restraint systems designed to protect older and larger children in vehicle collisions.

The results of this research will directly impact European and potentially worldwide testing.

The EPOCh partners are TRL, Humanetics, Applus IDIADA, Dorel and the University of Surrey.

Details of this groundbreaking work will be presented by consortium partners, in a summary at the Protection of Children in Cars Conference in December 2011 and in more depth in March 2012 at the COVER Workshop on Child Safety.
