Se pone en marcha la decimoséptima Conferencia Internacional sobre Protección de los Niños en Coches en Munich


Experts, scientists, pediatricians, lawmakers, researchers and manufacturers will be gathering together on 5 and 6 December in Munich for the 17th ‘International Conference on Protection of Children in Cars’.

The conference will be taking a look at new mobility concepts, the rise of car or ride sharing, and automated and self-driving vehicles. Child restraint systems are also becoming increasingly connected with automobiles. Furthermore, the debate will focus on the basic requirements of a CRS, whether they are easy to install and use as well as discussing the ongoing information and education that consumers should receive. 

The conference starts on 4 December with a workshop addressing future transport configurations and safety culture, future transport options and protection of children in self-driving cars. This same day will also cover the topic of children in obliquely oriented seats, the roles of seat orientation angle and belt type. 

The second session will present a study on child transport safety in Istanbul, Turkey followed by Mobile Kids, a corporate social responsibility program carried out in India and a final presentation which will emphasize the importance of car seat instruction manuals to decrease misuse of these seats. 

The conference on 5 December will address future transport challenges, the protection of children in self-driving vehicles, new seating positions in automated cars and the future of children's road safety. Among other topics, they will also discuss the latest steps with regard to the R-129 standard and the Latin American Child Restraint System Assessment Program (PESRI). 

On 6 December there will be a presentation on dummies, mannequins and test processes and the misuse of child restraint systems.
