Project: Research project

Description

Improving safety in road transport constitutes a particularly important area. The objective of this project is to assist European restraint and vehicle manufacturers to develop effective rollover systems in a cost efficient manner. As such systems are implemented, this shall provide increased protection to members of European society who travel by car. The project will cover various types of rollover accidents including injury mechanisms and protection methods. The focus of the project is on occupant safety during rollover scenarios. The target vehicles are passenger cars, including SUV, MPV and Minivans. The main expected results are an electronical rollover database and categorization on rollover scenarios, information on occupant behaviour prior and during roll, best practice instruction for numerical and experimental test methods and a physical demonstrator on rollover occupant safety.
