MIROS Hosted 8th OASIM Workshop

Kuala Lumpur, 26 October 2022 – The Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) hosted the 8th OASIM workshop held from 18–19 October 2022. This workshop was held following the recent one held at UTAC in France last July.

The aim of the Overall ASEAN market Safety Improvement for Motorcycles (OASIM) project is to improve the safety of motorized two-wheeler in Southeast Asia (ASEAN) through driving aids. Earlier, the project had identified various accident-prone situations during the first workshop. Thus, in order to reproduce them, test means are developed within the framework of the project.

In this workshop, the partners presence also exchanged on the proposal for the upcoming ASEAN NCAP evaluation protocol around the test scenarios reproduced on the track using the test means. The project also kicked start the OASIM’s Work Package 4 (WP4), which is to establish the synthesis of the project and subsequently provides an opportunity to review the main results of the last two years of work.

Plans have already been made for the OASIM’s 12 industrial partners to meet at MIROS’s upcoming new track, MIROS Technology Test Track (MT3) in early 2023. This will be the final workshop and also the conclusion of the project by validating target and test protocol in the future vehicle evaluation environment of the ASEAN market.
