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
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.
