 Strategies for managing the effects of kinetic energy in crashes

Join UC Berkeley SafeTREC Co-Director and Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety (CSCRS) Associate Director Offer Grembek for the latest session in the CSCRS Research to Practice Bytes Series on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at 11:30am PT for "Strategies for managing the effects of kinetic energy in crashes." This session will describe the role of kinetic energy as a focal principle of the Safe System approach. A proposed framework that allows us to tap into a set of six ordinal crash prevention strategies will be presented. Implications for policy making and technological innovation will be discussed.

CSCRS Research to Practice Bytes

CSCRS’s Research to Practice Bytes series focuses on multidisciplinary research and practices to advance transportation safety. The series frequently features principles and practices related to Safe Systems and the role of systems science, core themes in CSCRS’s initiatives.  Visit the CSCRS webinar series webpage for links to recordings and slides for past webinars in the series.

About the CSCRS

The Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety (CSCRS), is a U.S. Department of Transportation-funded National University Transportation Center led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Highway Safety Research Center.

CSCRS is one of five national University Transportation Centers announced in November 2016. The Center unites leading university transportation research, planning, public health, data science and engineering programs with the mission to create and exchange knowledge to advance transportation safety through a multidisciplinary, Safe Systems approach.

The UC Berkeley team, led by SafeTREC Co-Director Offer Grembek, is one of five university consortium members, along with the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Duke University, Florida Atlantic University and University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
