A dedicated project on PTW safety is needed to tackle the issue, involving a representative sample of stakeholders: from research specialists, dedicated test facilities and expertise and the related industry (both PTW manufacturers and protective equipment suppliers).
PIONEERS bring all those together in a community dedicated to increasing PTW safety putting the user (rider) at the centre.
Four main pillars are built around the figure of the PTW user with the objective of enhancing the four most critical areas in PTW safety:
- To achieve a deep understanding of the injuries sustained by the riders
- To increase the performance of safety systems
- To develop better test and assessment methods
- To increase the awareness and the usage rate of PPE.
