  • Comparative Protocol Study between R44 and R129, I-Size Regulations for Child Restraint Systems

Comparative Protocol Study between R44 and R129, I-Size Regulations for Child Restraint Systems

In spite of the reduction of road fatalities over recent years according to the EU data, children remain a vulnerable group. The safety of children travelling in vehicles needs to be enhanced by improving the CRS in terms of the kinematics and biomechanics considered in its testing. Both anthropometry and side impact need be considered [...]

Virtual development at Applus+ IDIADA

The current disruption in the automotive industry is unprecedented, as not one, but several major changes are forcing it to adapt: the 4 megatrends that have defined the R&D investments during the last decade (Autonomous, Connected, Electrified, and Shared cars) are finally reaching mass-market readiness – and the consumer is already demanding them. Maintaining a [...]

Cybersecurity requirement for connected vehicles

Cyber attacks on connected vehicles present a real threat to the safety of road users, both for their physical safety and data and privacy. Much like passive safely, as a “hidden” quality of the motor, cybersecurity is only perceived by the user after an event. […]

Passive safety in car crashes: improved 3D tracking and restraint system analysis

Traditionally, car manufacturers have worked to improve the road safety of their vehicles. This comprises both active safety - all of the elements that contribute to greater efficiency and stability when the vehicle is in motion in order to avoid an accident - and passive safety – those elements that minimise the damage that can [...]

I-size regulations for child restraint systems: Comparative protocol study between R-44 and R-129

Although EU data show a reduction in road fatalities in recent years, children remain a vulnerable group of road users. Improving the kinematics and biomechanics considered in testing child restraint systems (CRS) can enhance the safety of child passengers in vehicles. Both anthropometry (i.e. measurements of the human body) and side impact need to be [...]

Catalonia Living Lab (I): Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) development and testing

In 2015, the Spanish Traffic Department (DGT) published a legal framework allowing automated vehicle tests on public roads. Sparked by this publication, the Catalan government and the automotive industry (represented by CIAC) initiated Catalonia Living Lab. As a first step, a catalogue of test locations was created. This catalogue was created based on a solid [...]

Real Driving Emissions: real challenges for the automotive industry

Testing car emissions has become a crucial element of production for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), with consumers increasingly aware of the impact of car emissions when purchasing a vehicle. Under new EU regulations, in addition to completing laboratory tests (WLTP), vehicles must complete on-road testing in a Real Driving Emissions (RDE) test. […]
