WG21: Accident Studies

Terms of Reference

  1. To conduct an audit of existing and future accident data needs of the EEVC Working Groups to identify areas where poor quality information diminishes the value of accident and injury data and its subsequent analysis.
  2. To redress these deficiencies by obtaining better data and analysis from within or outside the EEVC countries, especially to make use of work of the EU-funded Pendant and SafetyNet projects.
  3. Through the analysis of existing accident databases make recommendations to the EEVC Steering Committee where future EEVC coordinated research could be undertaken, that would lead to reductions in both the number and severity of accidents and injury.
  4. Through the analysis of existing accident databases monitor developments in advanced safety systems, and attempt to determine their efficacy and deficiencies, in liaison with the other EEVC Working Groups, and report to the EEVC Steering Committee on a regular basis.
  5. Develop regular links with each of the EEVC Working Groups.
