Welcome to the Centre for Automotive Safety Research

 Are you a cyclist with children under the age of 5?
  • Do you ride with your child on your bike?
  • Do you ride but have never ridden with your child?
  • Are you a resident of Australia?

We are looking for participants to complete a survey to help us understand the safety of child passengers on bicycles. This includes all forms of carriers, such as front-mounted seats, cargo bikes, and trailers.

The results of this research will be used to raise awareness of the different child carriers available, provide information that will allow parents to make informed decisions when selecting a carrier, and improve the safety of child passengers.

The survey will take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

For more information please click here.

It was found that there is a pattern of changing travel mode choice among young adults characterised by their driving less, not at all or delaying getting a licence.

 Developing Systems to test Autonomous Emergency Braking

Automomous Emergency Braking is a new kind of safety technology - one that aims to prevent crashes or reduce the speed of impact using sensors that allow the vehicle to look ahead.

This new safety technology calls for new ways to assess it. At CASR that means getting out of the lab and onto the track.

See the video showing what we are doing.
