Cause Analysis of Motor Vehicle Accidents
Traffic accidents are one of the most impressive concomitants of individual as well as public-collective mobility. On the one hand, they require clarification for legal (criminal and civil) evaluation and jurisdiction. On the other hand, the recognition of the context in which they arise is an important prerequisite for the development of measures for their containment up to the "zero-vision". This applies both to the passive and active protection of traffic partici-pants and to the configuration of e.g. assistance systems based on real events. In addition to the technical prerequisites for the reconstruction of traffic accidents, the cognitive-psychological and medical aspects of the genesis and impact of accidents on individuals and society are also presented.

- At the end of the course, students will be able to carry out expert assessments of traffic accidents, which can also be applied to the test evaluation.
- At the end of the course, students will be able to perform common methods and calculation procedures on crash tests.
