An international student safety technology design competition will be organised during the next ESV (Enhanced Safety of Vehicles) conference to be held in Lyon, FRANCE in June 2007. The final competitors have to be selected within each of the three world regions: Asia/Pacific, Europe, North America. The proposed Specific Support Action SAFECOS 07 is aimed at organising and supporting the technical models designed by European student teams to be presented at the next ESV Conference in June 2007.
The competition will be organised in 3 steps:
1. pre-selection of the 6 more relevant projects based on their written description (including drawings)
2. construction of models of the 6 selected projects and selection of the 3 best projects according to presented models
3. exhibition of the 3 winner models at the ESV Conference.
For phases 1 and 2, the jury will be appointed by the EEVC (European Enhanced Vehicle-safety Committee) Steering Committee and, at the same time, a similar procedure will be put in place in North America and in Asia/Pacific.
