EU project on traffic safety and crash testing

A virtual model of the human, developed in the the Vinnova financed project VIVA
Crash safety testing is one of the tools used to improve safety on roads. The EU is therefore funding a research project that started recently to develop virtual methods of crash testing. The long-term goal is to supplement the physical evaluation of crash protection in and from the cars by virtual...

Simulator used to practice emergency responses safely

Emergency responses of the police, ambulance, and rescue services are associated with a high risk of accidents, but practicing them in real traffic is neither safe nor permissible. A simulator-based method developed by the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) offers a unique...
