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 will be reported.
With those comprehensive targets, the 14th Conference Protection of Children in Cars intends to 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.
On December 7, 2016 a workshop on child safety and cultural approach will bring together people interested in understanding CRS use with respect to safety culture. Safety campaigns in different regions of the world and enhanced education programs will be reported in order to promote child safety worldwide.
The access to the workshop is free for registered participants of the conference.
