International Conference Protection of Children in Cars

A Conference of TÜV SÜD

December 3 - 4, 2020
Exchange with experts
International Conference

Especially 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. Therefore TÜV SÜD Academy organizes this conference 2020 too - again acting as worldwide forum for safety engineers, accident researchers, experts in biomechanics, pediatricians, behavourial scientists, representatives of rulemaking, consumer organizations, promotors of safety campaigns and specialists in vehicle and CRS rating procedures as well as for students, working in the field of child safety. 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. The International Scientific Program Committee invites all experts working in the field child safety to submit their proposals for paper until Thursday, September 3, 2020.

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.
