New concept for the protection of child occupants of motor vehicles of two wheels. Program: INNPACTO (Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad; Fondos FEDER).
Applus IDIADA is developing harmonized and standardized assessment procedures and related tools for selected integrated safety systems in the fields of expertise: Autonomous driving; ADAS; PNCAP; testing and development of chassis control systems; pre-crash systems; crash compatibility; child safety; whiplash, HMI.
The current situation of Information Communication Technologies (ICT) for the automotive sector shows that 90% of all new functionalities equipped in a vehicle are provided by electronics and that electronics represents more than 30% of the total cost of a passenger car. Most vehicles are equipped with at least 4 ECUs, but in some cases they can reach 50 ECUs.
Applus IDIADA developed an integral service for the development roadside elements friendly in case of an accident following the requirements detailed in the European and national standards: EN 1317-1, 1317-2 (European standard for the testing of road safety systems. Applies to road barriers, bridge fences and energy absorbers. The energy absorption and vehicle re-conducting capabilities are evaluated); UNE 135900 (Spanish norm for the evaluation of motorcyclist protection systems, to be installed in vehicle restraint barriers. Continuous and punctual systems are considered. Generally, the protection system is attached to the vehicle barrier, which is installed in normal working conditions. The system has to re-conduct the dummy and minimize the forces produced in the neck); EN 12767 (European Norm regarding urban and road furniture. Post crash velocities and vehicle behavior are evaluated).
In 2002, Applus IDIADA started the first activities for the development of hybrid and electric vehicles in the areas of passive safety and durability. During the last 10 years, Applus IDIADA has been involved in the development and homologation of more than 20 electric/hybrid vehicles, providing our knowledge in the fields of passive safety, active safety, high voltage safety, powertrain, durability and homologation. Applus IDIADA developed an integral service for the development of hybrids and full electric vehicles, able to reach all functionalities of the all type of vehicles.
