Euro NCAP Passive Safety Workshop


A top rating in Euro NCAP is part of the specs for almost all newly developed passenger cars. Hardly anything is more unpleasant for a developer than a surprising downgrade in the rating. Typical reasons for results that turn out worse than expected are often marginal differences in the execution and evaluation of the tests or modifiers assigned by Euro NCAP. To avoid this, it is important to know and understand the Euro NCAP procedure in detail. This is exactly where the Euro NCAP Passive Safety Workshop comes in: In the workshop, the latest test and assessment procedures in the area of passive safety (adult occupant protection, child protection and pedestrian protection) are presented specifically and illustrated as far as possible with concrete practical examples. Due to the workshop character of the event, participants will have the opportunity to present their specific problems and questions, of course also regarding the tests that have been established for some time. The course instructor Volker Sandner and his team have been conducting Euro NCAP tests as an accredited Euro NCAP laboratory for many years and, as a contributor to or leader of various Euro NCAP working groups, he has played a significant role in the new and further development of the rating. For example, the trend-setting MPDB frontal crash was developed under his leadership.

Who should attend?

The workshop is aimed at development and test engineers of vehicles who have the goal to achieve a good Euro NCAP rating. Basic knowledge in the field of passive vehicle safety and Euro NCAP rating should already be available. If necessary, prior participation in the seminar Introduction to Passive Safety or the seminar Euro NCAP Compact is recommended.

Course Objectives
