SAFER seminar and open discussion workshop about Real world data

11 December 2018 09:00–11:00

Welcome to a SAFER seminar and open discussion workshop about Real world data!

Safety experts from JARI, Japan, is visiting SAFER in December and we are delighted to invite you to a seminar in conjunction to their visit.

Seminar title: An update on JARI’s strategic traffic safety research
Seminars speaker: Jacobo Antona-Makoshi (PhD), Japan Automobile Research Institute (JARI)

JARI is a well-known neutral research institution in Japan with almost 50 years of history on traffic safety research and testing. Jacobo Antona-Makoshi is a former ‘SAFER doctor’ with a decade of safety research experience at JARI and Chalmers. In this seminar, Jacobo will give an overview of the most relevant research activities he is currently involved with. In particular, detailed updates will be provided on Traumatic Brain Injury biomechanics research for crash testing purposes, and multi-agent traffic simulation modeling for the estimation of the impact of Automated Driving (AD) technologies on safety.

Following the seminar, you are welcome to participate in an open discussion workshop with Jacobo Antona-Makoshi and Nobuyuki Uchida from the JARI Advanced Safety Research division on the following topics:
- New accident data collection needs.
- Methodologies to estimate the impact of AD technologies on safety.
- Combination of naturalistic driving data, experimental data and numerical modeling techniques to simulate human (driver, pedestrian and cyclist) behaviour.
- New physical and virtual testing needs.
Lotta Jakobsson, Research area director at SAFER, will chair the discussion. We are reaching out to a multi-disciplinary research group.
