Our mission is to better understand, treat, and prevent all types of crash injuries.

A Worldwide Challenge

In 2008, the United Nations added Global Technical Regulation #9 - Pedestrian Safety to the Global Registry. This regulation seeks to better protect the thousands of pedestrians and cyclists that are injured by motor vehicles each year across the globe.

Data collected from the International Harmonized Research Activities Pedestrian Safety working group demonstrates that pedestrian safety is a worldwide challenge.


Of those individuals involved in pedestrian/motor vehicle crashes, our most vulnerable populations, children and the elderly, are also the most likely to be in those accidents; children under the age of 15 and adults over the age of 60.

To gain an in-depth understanding of this problem, see this infographic from the World Health Organization.

There are two long term goals for the consortium:

There are four ways in which ICAM will work to achieve the above noted goals:
