Writing a handbook of vehicle safety measures
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of the 16th International Conference Road Safety on Four Continents: Beijing, China. 15-17 May 2013, Linköping: Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut, 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
This paper describes the development of a handbook intended to increase the common Chinese knowledge of safety features in today’s cars. The handbook is the result of the joint effort of China based CATARC and Autoliv China as well as Sweden based Chalmers University and Autoliv Research. The origin and basis of the handbook is the master thesis work by the Chalmers student Jing Li.
It is known from the introduction section that road traffic safety is a big issue at global levels for it is a leading factor for fatalities. The problem in China is serious since the number of vehicles on the roads grows fast, which means it is more likely to be exposed to road accidents and the safety countermeasures and people’s safety awareness fail to catch up with the increasing traffic. This project work is done following the methods of literature review, telephone interviews with Chinese people, accident data research, and Madymo simulations for common but dangerous situations. It is to combine the techniques and the real situations, which are totally different from Sweden, to make the techniques serve more people. Through these methods, the handbook of vehicle safety measures is developed.
