MESSRING Crash Testival – Official Inauguration of the new HQ and Test Facilty.
Back in December 2020 in the green outskirts of Munich, German crash test specialists MESSRING moved into its new building, a state-of-the-art purpose-built office block with crash test facility. Since they moved in, the world faced a pandemic, home working became a new normality, and inaugurations and events firmly put on hold. As things started to open up again from mid 2022, MESSRING had the opportunity to inaugurate the premises in a festive way, and they certainly put on a great show and demonstration of their capabilities.
The company celebrated with a two day “MESSRING Crash Testival”, inviting their clients, partners and employees, in addition to the festive evening event, the program also included numerous agenda items relating to the topic of vehicle safety.
During the first morning numerous guests were provided with a session of technical presentations, by prominent speakers including:
Prof. Andre Seeck, Director of the Federal Highway Research Institute on the topic: EuroNCAP Roadmap 2030,
Dr. Igor Doric, Managing Director of MESSRING Active Safety on the subject of: Real World Safety Testing
and Dr. Christoph Nebl, Head of Department MESSRING Active Safety and Battery Test on the topic: Perfect Tools for Battery Testing
The session created the framework for lively talks and discussions about the future of vehicle safety. Later on day one, a special highlight, was the entire range of active and passive safety solutions, which was presented in an impressive live demonstration. From preventive accident avoidance through emergency braking to the actual crash test and the subsequent rescue of occupants by the fire fighters, the entire cascade of an accident was vividly recreated on the company’s own equipment and accompanied by expert commentary.
During the second day, the experts gathered and set out to delve deeper into the topic in a three-hour workshop format and to jointly explore what potential developments, challenges and changes the industry can expect in the coming decades.
