Accident examples & crash tests

DEKRA Accident Research was set up in 1978 to provide numerous services connected with road safety and the analysis of real accidents. The field of work ranges from minor collisions to major pile-ups and from fire tests to crash barrier failures. Vehicle dynamics tests to determine the potential benefits of active safety systems as well as the reconstruction and analysis of a large number of accident sequences are carried out on the basis of theoretical approaches, assembled knowledge and practical tests.
The results of accident research and –analysis are described in the following lines using accident examples.
