Improving Safety for Women requires more than a Female Crash Test Dummy

article imageIs crash testing biased against women? It s a fair question. After all, the safety improvements spurred by vehicle testing have not erased disparities in risk. Although more men than women are killed in crashes, women who are involved in crashes are more likely to be seriously injured than men. And, as some safety advocates have pointed out, the frontal crash tests conducted by IIHS and the government use a crash test dummy that represents an average-size man.

Asian Newcomers make strong Safety Debut, but Tesla Model Y steals the Show

article imageEuro NCAP publishes its fifth round of safety ratings. The highly anticipated Tesla Model Y did not disappoint and shoots to the top of recently published five-star cars, while the new electric Genesis GV60 continues the 5-star success of the GV70 and GV80 models tested last year. Euro NCAP also tested two newcomers from China s Great Wall Motor Company - the ORA Funky Cat and the WEY Coffee 01, both achieving top marks. Finally, the new Kia Niro is awarded four stars with standard equipment, but five when fitted with the optional safety pack.

Toyota's Collaborative Safety Research Center adds four new Projects to latest Five-year Research Phase

article imageToyota's CSRC adds four additional research projects to the next phase of its pioneering automotive safety research. The projects include a study of human diversity in injury biomechanics, a look at technologies that can help prevent impaired drivers from endangering themselves or others, how to help predict when a driver is at risk of incapacitation or illness before it becomes an emergency and how to more effectively pass the operation of the vehicle between the driver and automation.

Driverless Technology needs Education, as Road Safety Charity warns Self-driving Vehicles will not eliminate Crashes

article imageIAM RoadSmart is urging British MPs to get the government to prioritise driver training for self-driving vehicles to keep roads safe. Driverless cars will not eliminate crashes, as lack of real-world testing and over-reliance on technology could lead to unsafe driving behaviours without further training. The government recently announced proposals for self-driving vehicles to be on the roads as soon as next year.
