IIHS hosts global NCAP fleet safety day event
Geotab will be attending Global NCAP Fleet Safety Day. The event focuses on vehicle safety technology and includes a car-to-car crash test.
Geotab will be attending Global NCAP Fleet Safety Event on October 26-27, 2016 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The event, organized by Global NCAP in partnership with the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS), will be hosted at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)’s Vehicle Research Center (VRC). National fleet and safety leaders will gather for a discussion of global road safety standards and new crash avoidance technologies. The Open Day on Fleet Safety will also include vehicle safety demonstrations and a live car-to-car crash test.
The IIHS Vehicle Research Center in Ruckersville, Virginia includes a 22,000 sq.ft. crash hall with three runways, testing labs, and test tracks. IIHS engineers conduct 50-70 crash tests a year at the facility, in addition to crash avoidance research and evaluations.
