NHTSA proposes new U.S. NCAP Crashworthiness Pedestrian Protection Testing Program

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is proposing updates to its flagship vehicle safety consumer information program, the New Car Assessment Program, or NCAP. NHTSA is issuing a request for public comment on new pedestrian crashworthiness tests that measure how well vehicles protect those outside the vehicle, which can reduce pedestrian fatalities. The proposed changes will provide consumers with valuable safety information and are part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to improve safety on our nation’s roads.

Euro NCAP publishes Virtual Far Side Simulation & Assessment Protocol

article imageThe Virtual Far Side Simulation & Assessment Protocol version 1.0 summarises the Euro NCAP Virtual Testing Crashworthiness (VTC), procedure applied to far-side impact. The aim of the procedure is to add more robustness to the evaluation of far-side protection through the deployment of additional, virtual CAE simulations. These simulations are based on load case variations of the Euro NCAP far-side sled procedure defined.

Three new Projects in SAFER's Portfolio for increased Traffic Safety for unborn Children

article imageInternational studies indicate that there is a lack of information and correct recommendations for pregnant women regarding use of the safety belt, as well as an ignorance of how the belt should be positioned. There is great potential for increased road safety for pregnant women and their unborn children, and the new SAFER associated projects aims identify the knowledge gap and take action. The projects, led by Chalmers Industriteknik and Folksam and funded by Skyltfonden, have been associated to SAFER to support the knowledge building in this important area.
