SafetyUpDate 2017

SafetyUpDate 2017

22 presentations, pdf download

The SafetyUpDate has already become a tradition: since 2003 the congress has taken place annually in Aschaffenburg.

The idea behind the SafetyUpDate is simple:

Common seminars typically offer very little new information to experts, since such courses naturally must convey a lot of basic knowledge in order to bring all the participants to same level of knowledge. Experts, however, are particularly interested in the latest developments in their fields. That is what the SafetyUpDate provides: Within two days you receive a detailed update of all relevant fields in automotive safety. It works just like a software update: You do not have to reinstall the entire software, but only those modules that are really new.

All important areas of vehicle safety are addressed:

  • The requirements session covers new findings in biomechanics and accident research, new legal requirements and changes in consumer tests like Euro NCAP.
  • In the methods session, experts present the latest news from testing and simulation and explain how these methods can help you to better meet the continuously increasing requirements.
  • The third session focuses on development strategies for frontal and side impacts. Experts show approaches for the most important crash scenarios.
