Field Data - A Base for the Development of Safe Vehicles

Transportation of people and goods has increased gradually over the years with the consequence of injuries and fatalities to people in the transport system. An extensive collection and analysis of field date is needed to describe the injury problem in the transport system, as well as to understand the mechanisms why accidents and injuries occur. Field data has over the past fifty years served as a very important base for the development of safe vehicles and has strongly contributed to correct priorities, an improved understanding of the complex mechanisms, and provided the opportunity to evaluate the impact of measures taken. This will provide a short overview of how field data is used as the basis for the development of safe vehicles.
