Body/Chassis/Occupant Protection and Pedestrian Safety/Structure

As we move from SAE levels 1-5 of automated vehicles, the criticality of occupant protection and safety as well as chassis and structure development cannot be underestimated. WCX Organizers bring over 175 critical subject matter experts from OEMs, suppliers and consultants to present at 40 sessions on issues around human factors, biomechanics, vehicle dynamics, aerodynamics, accident reconstruction, pedestrian, vehicle impact, crashworthiness, tires, wheels, lights and restraints.

We are seeking your expertise and willingness to share knowledge by preparing an abstract for manuscripts and oral presentations that address critical pain points engineers are experience and solutions that will help them solve issues on technology development and integration that affect day to day vehicle development issues.
