ICAT is organizing the first edition of “International Webinar on Crash Analysis for Road Safety (iCARS-2020)” from December 10 to 12, 2020.
The Department of Heavy Industry (DHI) has established the Accident Data Analysis Centre (ADAC) [erstwhile one of the centres of NATRIP] at International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT) to perform in-depth study of the Road Accident’s data collected in real time and to support concerned agencies with technical data and formulated recommendations on road accidents and road safety.
In the effort to address this subject of National importance, ADAC-ICAT targets to provide common platform for discussion, communication, demonstration and exposition for the concerned Central and State Government Agencies, Institutions involved in Road Safety and associated stakeholders so the significance of road safety can be inculcated through combined effort. Keeping the above vision in view, the ICAT is now organizing the iCARS-2020, in place of the earlier scheduled seminar, owing to COVID-19 restrictions.
In the backdrop of Road Safety, this digital event targets to bring together experts from the government agencies involved in road safety such as Transport Department, Police and Traffic Department, Crash Analysis Tool Suppliers, Insurance Agencies, Trauma Care & injury research institutions, academic institutions, Road Safety Auditors, NGOs, associated stakeholders to share their knowledge/ experiences and to showcase the advancement made in the field of in-depth study of road accidents.
The webinar will open up discussions and presentations on mitigation of severities in road accidents and reduction of blackspots on road through in-depth accident data collection, scientific crash analysis, crash reconstruction, formulation of appropriate measures etc.
