Vehicle Passive Safety Network (EVPSN) held its third annual conference
on 2 October 2002 in Brussels. The event featured high-level discussions
among some of Europe's top vehicle safety players. Researchers presented
the network's latest results as well as plans for future RTD.
EVPSN brings together more than 45 highly experienced and multidisciplinary
partners, including major car manufacturers, safety systems suppliers,
research institutes and universities from across Europe with the goal
of reducing the number of road accident victims.
2002 conference was organised by the Netherlands’ TNO
Automotive in collaboration with Chalmers
University of Technology and DaimlerChrysler.
According to EVPSN co-ordinator Dr Jac Wismans, conference topics included
accidentology, injury biomechanics, restraint systems, vehicle crashworthiness
and virtual testing. Technical presentations covered Community-funded
research projects and several organisations presented their views on passive
and active safety issues.
