Automotive Safety Training

Automotive Safety Training in Context to “Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program

Traffic accident related injuries continued to be a major health issue in India. This serious issue requires proper intervention strategies. One of the most effective intervention strategies is improving the crashworthy performance of vehicles running on Indian roads. This strategy demands proper understanding of occupant injury mechanisms. Today around the globe occupant safety is crucial factor in vehicle design and marketing of that design.
The training is custom-made keeping the latest Indian regulatory requirements in focus. It is focused on important aspects of traffic accident injury causation analysis that is dominant for developing countermeasures preventing or reducing the risk of injuries during the crash phase. This training provides a comprehensive method of conducting injury causation analysis in context to traffic related accidents. This workshop also focuses on the pre-crash conditions affecting the injury outcome.

Learning Objective

By attending this training, you will be able to:
Understand and recognize the data as required for a successful traffic injury causation analysis.
Conduct the vehicle kinematics responsible for injury causation.
Recognize the injury pattern and its severity.
Why injury scaling is important and how quantitative characterization of injuries are important for injury analysis.
How standard testing data can be used for injury causation analysis.
How diagnostic scans can be used to analyze pre and post-crash scenarios.
How to formulate and test the hypothesis in context to the injury causation.
Conduct occupant dynamic analysis and subsequent injury mechanism analysis.
Understand various defined injury criteria’s and their basis.

Who Should Attend

This training is designed and developed keeping Indian Traffic Accident Injury Prevention Strategy in focus. All the professionals who are involved with automotive safety, accident data collection and design can benefit from this training. This training shall facilitate the automotive safety engineers in their design strategies to show compliance with future BNVSAP (Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program).
