Vehicle Safety is Critical Dr. Keming Chen
the World’s Top Automotive Safety Expert, Joins Huaren Technology
July 26, 2018
  • Dr. Keming Chen, the world’s top automotive safety expert, has confirmed to join Huaren Technology as the company’s Chief Engineer for Vehicle Safety.
  • Dr. Chen has worked for nearly 20 years at Ford in the field of automotive safety and possesses over ten Chinese and foreign patents. He is one of the few top automotive safety experts in our country who have mastered the core technologies for vehicle structure analysis such as the Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and have participated in the construction of the national crash safety labs.  
  •  Huaren Technology has adopted the world’s highest safety standard at the very beginning of product development. Safety is a key element throughout the lifecycle of its products. And every model is designed to become a global model.
Recently, Dr. Keming Chen, the world’s top automotive safety expert, was invited to attend the 7th International Symposium on Passive Safety and Technology and delivered a speech. At the conference, he confirmed that he had joined Huaren Technology as the company’s Chief Engineer for Vehicle Safety. At the conference, Dr. Chen introduced the regulations and assessment procedures for automotive safety in each country of the world as well as their occupant restraint system’s composition and integration method, compared and analyzed the crash test and assessment systems of Europe, the United States and China, and thus pointed out that China would still have a long way to go in adopting and optimizing automotive safety standards, and that enterprises should see automotive safety as the bottom line throughout the lifecycle of their products to go ahead of standards through forward development.
tarting from July 1, the 2018 edition of China’s New Car Assessment Program (C-NCAP) became officially adopted. The amended C-NCAP is closer to the European standard: its automotive safety assessment system has become more complete; active safety test as well as the safety test for pure electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles have been added; and no vehicle not meeting the requirements will be given a star rating. Dr. Chen stressed that tests for electric shock protection, voltage pressure, electrical safety, physical protection, insulation resistance of the power system’s loads, electrolyte leakage, and EESS safety assessment etc. added to the new program are among the key issues that have to be considered during the product planning and design stage of the next-generation vehicles, to make sure that nothing goes wrong when it comes to these things. 
 Dr. Chen possesses more than ten Chinese and foreign patents. He has deep understandings of and insights into the evolution of automotive safety technologies as well as the development trends of China’s and overseas automotive safety regulations and standards, and has a lot of research findings and real-world experience about the application of computer simulation in automotive safety.  He is one of the few top automotive safety experts in China who have conducted the CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) analysis of vehicle structure, the CAE analysis of the restraint system, the sled test, and the vehicle test,  and have also participated in the construction of the national crash safety labs. 
During the almost 20 years with Ford, Dr. Chen took various positions such as the CAE analyst for crash safety, the CAE team leader, the crash safety development engineer, and the safety PAT leader. He led the assessment of the final reports for automotive safety development and safety certification of multiple major projects, and was also on the Task Force Team of Ford. He has become one of the few Chinese recognized as the top automotive safety experts. 
After coming back to China in 2012, Dr. Chen joined the Brilliance Auto Group to serve as the Senior Technical Director for Automotive Safety and led the safety development of the company’s C-NCAP Five Star-rated models. After that, he became the Chief Expert and Automotive Safety Director of the China Automotive Engineering Research Institute (CAERI), drove CAERI to become a strategic partner of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and also brought IIHS as the world’s most rigorous automotive safety test standard to China. He solved China’s bottleneck of not being able to conduct the small-overlap crash test and enable China to have one of the few labs in the world that can conduct this test.  The China Insurance Automotive Safety Index (C-IASI) initiated by him and formulated with his participation has become an internationally influential automotive safety standard, acclaimed to be the Chinese version of IIHS, which has played an important role in driving automotive safety in our country. 
As an innovative automotive company that is always technology-driven and always adheres to forward development, Huaren Technology has adopted the world’s highest safety standard at the very beginning of product development. Safety is a key element throughout the lifecycle of its products. Its safety design can meet the five-star rating of Europe’s E-NCAP and America’s IIHS at the same time, making every model a global model. By sending Dr. Chen to attend a national automotive safety standard symposium as Huaren Technology’s Chief Engineer for Vehicle Safety, we can see how important safety is to the entire team at Huaren Technology. Looking into the future, Huaren Technology will integrate its ultimate pursuit of safety into various development processes to create the industry’s leading technical benchmarks, and to ensure automotive safety for China and the entire world.
