PIONEERS aims to reduce the number of Powered Two Wheeler fatalities and severely injured by increasing the safety, performance, comfort and usage rate of Personal Protective Equipment and the development of new on-board safety devices.
The results expected of PIONEERS project are:
- higher understanding of how to prevent injuries to PTW users
- better testing methods enabling better performance assessment
- better products (PPEs and onboard systems) from European manufacturers, achieving an increased safety level of PTW users and improving European competitiveness.
The implementation of the PIONEERS’ main results will contribute to reducing PTW fatalities up to 25% in 2025 and injuries by defining test methods to develop protective systems and on-board systems to reduce impact severity. The development of new testing methods and products will strengthen European leadership in the PTW industry.
