Occupant Protection in Far Side Crashes

Regulations and interventions to protect far side occupants in side impact crashes do not currently exist, even though these occupants account for up to 40% of harm in real world side impact crashes. To address this, a comprehensive international research program has been assembled involving many of the world’s experts in side impact protection and biomechanics. Seven work-tasks are outlined for conducting this research, which is due to be completed by the end of 2007.
