Improving Passive Safety of Vehicles (MSM6840770043)

PROJECT

Improving Passive Safety of Vehicles (MSM6840770043)
Original Language Title: 
Zvýšení pasivní bezpečnosti vozidel

Background & policy context: 

Both active and passive safety of all the means of transport are issues of worldwide importance. Even though the level of knowledge seems to be satisfactory, there is undoubtedly space for improvement.

Objectives: 

The research focuses on legislative field and experimental research related to computing simulation of passive safety of vehicles. The results of the project should enable the assessment of probability and extent of injury of pregnant women and embryos as a result of car accidents. The goal of the research is the introduction of intelligent and adaptive barrier systems in the category of cargo vehicles. Experimenting with car-motorcycle collision on a test polygon proved potential alternatives of better motorcyclist and passenger protection
