Evacuating injured bus passengers faster after accidents
Quick response time after a traffic accident is crucial for injured passengers, more so in bus accidents where the number of victims delay evacuation time. In Europe, for example, 30 000 bus passengers were severely injured in 2015 alone, according to World Health Organisation statistics. The E-RESCUE project involves a tool kit being installed at every bus seat. This kit can immobilise injured passengers and the whole seat can be extricated from the bus. This safety system will be extended to the car industry in the future, drastically reducing response time and hopefully contributing to fewer post-accident fatalities.
