THE WEEK THAT WAS: Takata the new Firestone?

5 December 2014

Back from two weeks' 'staycation', the words that stood out as I returned to the news desk last Monday were 'Takata' and 'Honda'.

For its part, Dutch firm TNO is developing an external airbag to protect pedestrians and cyclists in the event of a collision. The researchers used simulations, combined with real world accident data, to study the precise areas of the car a cyclist is most likely to come into contact with.
