7th Edition of
on Safety Driven By
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a spanner in the growth journey of the automotive industry across the globe. In the Indian context, the industry is striving to return to some semblance of normalcy after enduring a period of never-before-seen zero revenue and zero production for close to two months. Against this backdrop, Auto Tech Review for the first time ever is virtually conducting the 7th edition of Safety Driven by Technology Seminar on Thursday, August 27 from 10:00 am to 04:05 pm.
The 7th edition of Safety Driven by Technology Seminar will deliberate on five key focus areas – Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Active Safety Technologies, Passive Safety Technologies, New Age Software & Hardware for Safer Mobility and Safety Standards & Regulations. Rama Shankar Pandey, Managing Director, Hella India Lighting, will grace the 7th Safety Driven by Technology Seminar as the Conference Chairman.
The Safety Seminar assumes a great deal of importance given the overwhelming focus across the auto industry on vehicle safety. The adoption of automotive safety systems has increased rapidly over the last two decades with vehicles undergoing a lot of structural design changes with innovations being witnessed with use of lighter, yet robust materials aimed at improving vehicle safety. Road safety is a serious talking point area in India considering the fact that the country has the dubious distinction of recording around 1.5 lakh road fatalities, which translates into a road accident-related death every four minutes. In fact, around 90 % of road accident-related fatalities in India occur due to driver error, which only accentuates a strong need to bring about disciplined driving on Indian roads – one that helps mitigate, if not completely weed out road fatalities. Of course, in recent years various safer mobility-focussed initiatives have been undertaken by the government, which in turn, has led to vehicle manufacturers putting more focus on improving the safety quotient of vehicles with futuristic technologies.
Globally, several countries have set goals of achieving zero deaths in motor vehicle crashes. Sweden was one of the earliest proponents of eliminating crash deaths and now boasts of one of the world’s lowest traffic-related fatality rates - something India as a country can emulate.
Auto Tech Review welcomes your participation in our Safety Seminar to discuss, deliberate, and learn how India can achieve the ‘zero vision’ through technological interventions. The 7th edition of Safety Driven by Technology Seminar would seek to address the road safety challenges as well as seek solutions for the future.
