The program of the research fellowship is part of the European research project "Selection of Appropriate Vehicle Restraint Systems" (SAVeRS) that UNIFI is the Coordinator. The aim of the SAVeRS project is to produce a practical and readily understandable VRS guidance document and a user-friendly web-based tool that will allow the selection of the most appropriate solution in different road and traffic configurations for all types of Vehicle Restraint Systems (VRS): safety barriers including parapets; crash cushions (including truck-mounted attenuators), terminals and transitions; motorcycle protection devices.
