During the 3 years of the EU research project CASPER (FP7 GA n° 18564), partners have combined their expertise in the different fields of child safety in cars to reach the main objectives of the project: improvement of the rate of correctly restrained children and improvement of the performance of child restraint systems (CRS) through the definition of better tools and criteria for the evaluation of their protection level. Through numerous collaborations and participation to working groups, the CASPER consortium has been one of the actors in the European area of child safety. A large amount of data has been collected, analyzed and disseminated according to the needs of the different groups, and some have already been included in the proposal for the text of the new regulation. This paper intends to make an transversal analysis of some specific items through the data available in the different tasks of the project, such as child safety and airbags (frontal, side, curtains), situation of ISOFIX systems, protection of the abdomen and analyse of specific systems such as shield systems or seatbelt adjusters. A larger focus will be made on items that have not yet been presented during the dissemination workshops of the CASPER project or for which complementary information has been made available.
