  • Principle and Vision

  • The Development Cycle

  • Accident Research

  • THUMS



Toyotas principle and vision l.jpg
Toyotas Principle and Vision

Principle:

TODAY for TOMORROW

Focus on proactivity on predicting problems and taking corrective measures before those problems take hold

  • Vision:

  • Zeronize & Maximize

  • Striving to Zeronize the negative impacts of cars on Society

  • Maximize the positive impacts on personal enrichment through comfort, fun and excitement

Road Traffic Burden 1/2

  • 50,000Road Traffic Fatalities in EU25 per year (2001)

  • 1,7 million Injured in EU25 per year

  • 1.2 million Road Traffic Fatalities in the World per year

  • 50 million Injured in the World per year

Source: European Environment Agency 2004

=> Need to improve Road Safety

Road Traffic Burden 2/2

WHO expects that by 2020 Road Traffic is 3rd largest contributor to burden of disease and injury

=> No action will increase burden by 60 % from today

Validated against Real Life Injuries in Accidents

=> Simulation predicts Injuries correctly


Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion

  • The design for cars to meet real life safety requires basic research

  • A fundamental part of this must be Accident Research, which helps to understand Accident Causation and Injury Causation/Mechanism

  • During design, advanced tools like THUMS can help increasing protection potential beyond traditional borders

  • It is important re-confirm the effect after each improvement cycle
