The New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) will be organizing the fourth course in Manila, the Philippines this September. Similar to the previous courses, ASEAN NCAP is collaborating with several organizations to provide the participants with various knowledge pertaining to road and vehicle safety.
The NCAP is a third-party organization that crash tests vehicles and gives them a safety rating. This is done to make sure consumers are educated about the vehicles they buy. The crash tests come in various forms such as the side-impact and the partial front impact. These crashes give consumers a glimpse of what could happen to them if they were to have a crash in that vehicle.
The partners involved are from Legal Engagement Advocating Development and Reform (LEADER), Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP), World Health Organization, Autoliv, Continental, Bridgestone, Denso, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, Toyota, and Global NCAP. The safety course happening in Manila will cover the theme of Passenger Car Safety and will be held on September 17, 2019, from 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m in Hotel Jen Manila.
During the course, the participants will be introduced to both passive and active vehicle safety technologies. Passive safety will cover vehicle crashworthiness and restraint systems such as airbags and seatbelts. This is also something that the ASEAN NCAP tests for during crashes. A crash test dummy is used to simulate a human. Active safety will focus on crash-avoidance technologies, for example, stability control and ESC, autonomous emergency braking (AEB), and several other technologies. Testing these features are important as they can help the driver maintain control of the vehicle during a crash or when the driver is trying to avoid an object.
The objective of this course is to have the participants understand the details of vehicle safety and how the technologies will be able to prevent a collision or reduce the severity of injury in the event of an accident happening. The course will also include an overview of how the NCAP and it's regulation work.
