This volume covers new research and development in vehicle safety, it looks at the outcome of new design solutions and their application in this field. It provides an environment for the constructive dissemination and discussion of new knowledge and its timely application. Vehicle manufacturers, researchers, and policy makers from around the world exchange information and views about future improvements in vehicle safety. The book includes topics such as accidents analysis, side impact, compatibility, active safety, rear impact and pedestrian safety. It is aimed at those related to the vehicle industy who are responsible for maintaining and improving safety standards, which include vehicle and component designers, manufacturers and suppliers, researchers, legislators, and road user groups.
