International Conference Protection of Children in Cars

A Live Online Conference of TÜV SÜD

December 2 - 4, 2020
Exchange with experts
International Live Online Conference

New mobility concepts, intermodality of traffic, automated / autonomous driving will influence the design and use of CRS and require continous information/education of consumers by evidence-based safety campaigns. As worldwide forum of child safety, the conference will also consider the needs and trends in developed and developing countries and their relevant recent safety regulations.

In this difficult time of pandemic effects it is substantial to continue the exchange of experience between experts in child road traffic safety worldwide regarding trends in legislation, results of recent research, product development and testing/rating procedures.

Therefor we have decided to hold the conference as an online conference. We will combine elements of on-demand content with live sessions in the program. We plan to make the presentations (limited to 20 minutes) available as on demand videos and the slides as well as the full paper for download. We will also have live elements / discussion forums on the 6 main conference topics during the 3 conference days in the afternoon (CET), with short summaries of each presentation from the on-demand part and with plenty of time for exchange and live discussions between the speaker, the chairs and the participants.

The detailed conference programm is expected to be available from early October.

The workshop entitled „Child Safety and Cultural Approach“ will bring people in contact being interested in understanding CRS use with the respect to diverse safety cultures around the world.

Safety aspects of children in road traffic should cover the whole range of their traffic participation as car occupants, pedestrians and cyclists as well as educational safety campaigns. Possibilities for intensive discussion and personal communication will be offered.

The access to the workshop is free for registered participants of the conference.

Looking back

to the conference Protection of Children in Cars 2019

TÜV SÜD takes stock of the international conference of child safety:

•160 experts involved
•23 nations

The automotive industry, car seat manufacturers, research institutes and consumer associations were involved in a lively debate on the industry’s future key issues:

•Looking at previous achievements, is there potential for further technical improvements?
•Are the car seats available at the moment with their high technical standards – but also their high price level – the right solution for newly industrializing countries that struggle with different sociocultural circumstances?
•How can the same level of protection be secured in these countries with acceptable effort and still considering their regional particularities?
•The concept of the „own car seat“ could become obsolete through the spreading of new concepts of mobility such as car sharing: How will this affect construction methods or even the issuing of regulations?

More than 160 experts from 23 nations were exchanging ideas and visions on the latest research findings, studies and licensing regulations. The participants suceeded in developing a positioning: Where do we stand? Where do we want to go? The outcome of this conference received international attention.
