Safe Small Electric Vehicles through Advanced Simulation Methodologies

Urban traffic will significantly change. Due to a substantial increase of small electric vehicles, a change of the most relevant collision scenarios is expected. Thus new vehicles shall be designed considering these new accident scenarios.

The goal of SafeEV is the development of clear and practicable guidelines for the virtual testing of small electric vehicles. These guidelines will include accident scenarios and assessment criteria as well as advanced evaluation methods, like for example so-called 'Human Body Models', for pedestrian and occupant safety. This guidelines will be disseminated to relevant stakeholders as basic towards the virtual certification of small electric vehicles by 2025+.
