OSCCAR – SAFER’s latest associated project

In Horizon 2020, a new project, OSCCAR, will begin in June – Future Occupant Safety for crashes in cars.

OSCCAR will deliver an integrated approach to enhance the personal safety for all occupants involved in future vehicle accidents. Specifically to understand future accident scenarios involving passenger cars, demonstrate new advanced occupant protection principles and concepts addressing future desired sitting position made possible by higly automated vehicles, and contribute to the development of diverse, omnidirectional, biofidelic and robust human body models. In addition, also establish an integrated, virtual assessment framework for complex scenarios and promote HBMs acceptance, with the ambition to pave the way for virtual-testing-based homologation including development of an exploitation strategy towards large scale implementation of virtual testing methods.

The project has 21 partners, including 19 from Europe and 2 from China. The project is led by Virtual Vehicles (ViF) in Graz. The total budget is 69 MSEK. Swedish partners include Chalmers, Autoliv and Volvo Cars. The project will run between June 2018 and 31 May 2021.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 768947.
