Aim of the workshop

_

The aim of the workshop is to host a well-informed discussion of airbag technology and the latest technical developments, and to illuminate the experiences of the rescue services. Critical issues are to be addressed and discussed with experienced airbag developers from the research and industry communities. The workshop seeks objectively to evaluate airbag technology and its implications for those engaged in rescuing people from vehicles equipped with airbags and, if a need for action is identified, to formulate a response. All participants in the workshop are expected to engage in the discussion.
