PROTECTIVE INNOVATIONS OF NEW EQUIPMENT FOR ENHANCED RIDER SAFETY

Deliverables

Improved numerical human body models

The deliverable reports on the suitability of state-of-the-art Finite-Element human body models for crash simulation for project-relevant load cases. This includes the assessment of given capabilities as well as reporting on the improved suitability by validation within the WP.

Dissemination and international cooperation plan

Plan including dissemination key elements such as articulation of articulation of the project identity (branding); identification of target audiences; specification of channels for connecting with audiences (events and media platforms) and cross-integration of dissemination output

Guidelines for the policy making: Future trends in accident scenarios and ISO 13232 review

This deliverable will include a set of guidelines for policy making based on the evidence of WP1 and future trends will be created and disseminated to foster the implementation of safer technologies, policies and habits for PTW users. Additionally, the outcomes of T1.1, will be compared with the ISO 13232 standard to check similarities and differences between the most critical scenario derived from PIONEERS T1.1 and the current ISO standard.

Riders’ needs

The deliverable, based on literature review and new collected data from the focus groups, will provide an insight into the riders’ perceptions of their safety needs, the barriers to use of existing protective equipment, and additional requirements of riders (e.g. comfort and weather protection) for PPE, in order to increase the usage.

PPE specifications

The deliverable includes both the technical concepts and the specifications (i.e. the minimal technical, incl. protective, requirements to be met) for the design of new PPE. A specific section will be dedicated to each body section under investigation in WP4: head and neck, upper torso, pelvis, lower leg and foot.

Report on injury risk assessment procedures

This report summarises the approaches proposed within the WP for the assessment of injury risks with Finite-Element human body models specifically for the project-relevant load cases. The deliverable also inlcudes the specification of the models proposed for the addressed load cases.
