Session 2: Deep Dive on Product Development:
Crash Test Dummies
Safety equipment in vehicles, such as headrests, seatbelts, and airbags, have been traditionally designed based on a male crash test dummy and male biometrics. This has serious implications and this session will look at different measures to address these, including female crash test dummies and how to bridge data gaps.
