Much progress has been made in the prevention of right turn collisions between trucks and pedestrians or bicyclists since our first symposium in 2013. Unfortunately, these accidents still occur and are among the most serious road traffic accidents. Often the traffic participants are seriously injured or even killed. The truck driver may be physically unharmed but is often traumatized by the experience.
This conference aims at discussing open questions such as how camera-monitor-systems or assistance systems may help to prevent right turn collisions. Representatives of the various interests groups e.g., from unions, enterprises and research institutions as well as experts from accident insurance institutions are therefore invited to the BG Verkehr headquarters at Hamburg, Germany. The accompanying market place with presentations of additional stakeholders invites to exchange experiences and meet colleagues. The goal of the conference is to foster the safety for all traffic participants.
