SafeEV: Current and planned activities
Conference poster, 2014
Within the next ten to 15 years more and more small (and alternative
drive train) vehicles will come to the roads. The latest results of the
Automotive Landscape study by Roland Berger Consulting states that
„Small vehicles will grow fastest across the globe“ by 2025.
This trend will motivate in particular the development and
market introduction of alternatively powered / small electric vehicles.
Especially for urban areas these SEVs will be beneficial due to e.g.
less space required, better mobility incl. parking, zero/reduced local
emissions (related to local regulations), etc.
The main objective of SafeEV is the development and application of
new advanced simulation tools & methods aimed at improved
protection of pedestrian and occupants of electric vehicles (EVs) in the
future on urban areas.
