Anniversary for Volvo Crash Team

Sharing an anniversary with the Volvo Cars Safety Center, which is celebrating its tenth birthday, the Accident Research Team at Volvo Cars is also four decades in safety research. Volvo launched this special unit to measure the effects of the safety belt in traffic accidents, a few years after Volvo engineer Nils Bohlin had invented the three-point safety belt.Volvo wanted to develop better and safer products in the future, and realized the importance of understanding exactly what happens to the car's occupants and the car itself in the course of an accident.

The team is truly unique...within a radius of Volvo's R&D center, the staff investigate ACTUAL real crashes (that involve Volvo vehicles) and use the information to design better safety systems.
