"European Automotive Technologies: Smart Solutions for Road Safety"

Programme - Map of the event

The CLEPA Safety Event showcased advanced active and passive safety techno-logies, ranging from Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) to pedestrian and vehicle detection as well as night vision and advanced restraint systems. By demon-strating the advanced safety technologies of the European automotive suppliers, CLEPA brought together the interested public, automotive experts and EU policy-makers. The event succesfully served as a platform not only for presenting the contribution of the European automotive suppliers to the goals of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, but also for exchanging ideas and gaining technical insight into state-of-the-art safety technologies.
