Focal point: Integrated Vehicle Safety and Safety Validation
The 2011 EU White Paper on the Single European Transport Area lists “close to zero fatalities in road transport” as ist traffic safety goal for 2050. In this context, driver assistance systems and automated driving are under discussion as offering great potential. It will take a long time, however, until such systems achieve comprehensive market coverage. Passive safety will therefore remain a mainstay of traffic safety, but the target will not be reached only by measures involving vehicles. crash.tech 2016 will look at the three priority fields of action of road traffic safety: vehicle, human and infrastructure. Only an integral approach to systems for accident avoidance and crashworthiness will help achieve the desired goals.
Against this background, crash.tech 2016 will address the latest topics relating to vehicle safety. In particular, this includes protection of vulnerable road users, test and simulation methods, the future development of dummies and the application of active human body models.
The progress in the development of assisted and automated driving makes it particularly clear how passive and active safety work together. Therefore main topics of the conference are methods of validation of new vehicle safety technology. What will be the impact of partial and high automated driving on accidents and passive safety? This question will be examined in a high-level expert panel discussion.
