Project ID: 218744
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

This is the periodic publishable summary for the EPOCH project which received funding under the European Commission(EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Its main aim was to drive the improvement or safety for older children travelling in vehicles, through extending the development of protocols, test procedures and measurement tools necessary, in view of the recent changes in legislation.

For the key injury mechanisms and the measurement capabilities a dummy was created to represent older children. Biomechanical requirements for the dummy were also produced.
