The experience with the harmonization and implementation of the two regulations – the ECE-R 44 and the updated ECE-R 129 – in markets worldwide will be reflected in detail. The new test requirements of EURO NCAP starting in 2016, the new CRS/Car compatibility requirements and in-depth analysis of improved accessibility of ISOFIX anchorages are another focal aim at this year’s conference. In a special session, progress of human models, their validation and new scaling procedures as well as upgraded anthropometric field studies should be reported. Real world accident studies should analyse improvements achieved in CRS safety and should outline new targets for the next years.
Based on the continuing success and still growing number of participants, the 14th Conference Protection of Children in Cars will act as worldwide forum for safety engineers, accident researchers, experts in biomechanics and pediatricians, representatives of rule making, consumer organizations, promoters of safety campaigns and specialists in car/CRS rating procedures.
