Chile announces vehicle safety labelling to include NCAP testing

4th July 2022

Chile has announced it will include NCAP safety ratings on labelling for new vehicle models, the first country in the region to do so. The move follows years of testing and advocacy for labelling in the country by New Car Assessment Programme for Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin NCAP), which was supported by the FIA Foundation.

Target the oldest diesel trucks to reduce racial disparities in air pollution exposure in NYC

13th April 2022

A new TRUE study of real-world vehicle emissions in New York City has two key findings in relation to truck emissions in NYC: First, less than 10% of diesel trucks on the road are responsible for more than two-thirds of the fleet's tailpipe PM2.5 emissions; and second, people of colour living in the city are exposed to more PM2.5 from diesel trucks than average while non-Latino white residents are exposed to less.

THUMS … Total Human Model for Safety

2nd March 2022

THUMS (Total Human Model for Safety) is a computer model that represents the human body, able to simulate injuries for real-life safety research that is difficult to measure on crash test dummies. Supplementing the existing methodology of full-scale real car crash testing, THUMS and the continual advance in computer capabilities is allowing the testing to move into the virtual world. Multiple changes to vehicle design, be that the seats, seatbelts, or chassis can now be iterated through to determine the safest installations, as well as allowing accident and injury reconstruction.
