Volvo’s safety experts have been recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Per Lenhoff, Senior Manager, and Magdalena Lindman, Technical Expert in Traffic Safety Data Analysis, who work at the Volvo Cars Safety Centre have been recognized for their contribution to improving traffic safety and reducing fatalities and serious injuries by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the United States.
Over the years they have worked on developing a range of systems including Run-off road occupant protection and both physical and CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) test methods that capture and replicate real-life crashes.
“We are delighted to receive this recognition for our work,” said Lindman. “Our goal is to make our roads a safer place for everyone. This is why we place so much importance on understanding real-world data. At Volvo Cars we do not engineer our cars to just pass safety tests–we engineer them to save lives. That has always been our starting point.”
