Testing the strength of bones helps to design safer car seats

Testing the strength of bones helps to design safer car seats
Computer simulated models and medical imaging have successfully been used to test the strength of young children’s bones, thanks to researchers at the University of Sheffield, and results have been produced which could help car seat manufacturers design safer car seats for young children. The study, the first on infant bone strength in relation to age/weight using models developed from modern medical images, is published today in the Journal of Biomechanics and Modeling in Mechanobiology.

Automatic emergency call saves lives

Automatic emergency call saves lives
It can save lives, which is why the automatic emergency call feature – termed eCall – will be mandatory for all new car and light commercial vehicle models in the European Union from 31st March 2018. It will therefore be integrated in future in an estimated 20 million new vehicles annually. The aim of the eCall system is to shorten the time between an accident and the arrival of the emergency services by up to 50% throughout Europe, and reduce the number of fatalities on the road by around 10%.
