Autoliv Joins Research Collaboration OSCCAR For Future Automotive Safety 

By partnering with vehicle manufacturers, research organizations and other automotive suppliers in the new research project OSCCAR (Future Occupant Safety for Crashes in Cars), Autoliv says it will contribute to harmonized methods and tools for future restraint development. 

Autoliv, a worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, has joined the new European H2020 research project OSCCAR (Future Occupant Safety for Crashes in Cars) to improve the protection and safety for occupants of the future vehicle.

Highly automated vehicles of the future, with comfort- and convenience-enhancing features such as relaxed seating positions and rotated seats, will require the development of more advanced and novel restraint systems. By partnering with vehicle manufacturers, research organizations and other automotive suppliers in the new research project OSCCAR, Autoliv says it will contribute to harmonized methods and tools for future restraint development.

“This project will provide valuable information for understanding future accident scenarios and how to provide the best protection with new restraint systems for novel interiors and seating positions for a diverse occupant population,” said Cecilia Sunnevång, vice president, research at Autoliv. “The project will provide input to regulation and consumer tests on how future occupant protection can be assessed by including tools such as crash test dummies and human body models and risk functions.”

Guiding principles and concepts for occupant protection will be developed and assessed by using harmonized human body models for complex test cases and with consideration of heterogeneity characteristics like gender, age and other demographic factors, allowing for a dedicated and individual increase in safety for the occupant population.
