Proposed reduction of car crash injuries through improved smart restraint development technologies

Objective

The objective of this project is to facilitate the efficient and effective development of "smart restraint systems". It recognises that such technologies are already under development to improve occupant safety during crashes. This project shall greatly assist the development of efficient smart restraint systems, thereby reducing societal costs. It shall also improve the competitiveness of the European motor industry by providing clear guidelines on functionality and evaluation requirements. This shall be based on new, important, real world data, new computer models of high-risk occupants, and a thorough evaluation of high-risk scenarios using a variety of techniques.
