The website of the project was migrated to a new system. It is now easier to keep the site current, so any information concerning GIDAS can be published more frequently and in time. It's also possible now to subscribe to a news mailing list. The current content of the site will be gradually renewed within the next weeks.
GIDAS (German In-Depth Accident Study) is the largest accident study in Germany.
The data collected in the GIDAS project is very extensive, and serves as a basis of knowledge for different groups of interest. Due to well defined sampling plan, also representativity compared to the federal statistic is guaranteed.
Since mid 1999, the GIDAS project collects about 2000 accidents in the areas of Hanover and Dresden per year. The project is supported by the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) and the German Association for Research in Automobile Technology (FAT). You can find details in financing and members of the steering group under the menu entry "Organisation".
Using the data is reserved to the participants of the project. However, to allow interested parties the direct use of the GIDAS data, several models of participation exist. You can find further information on this subject in the menu item "Data".
In the menu on the left side, you can find further information to the project: news, links to events and publications, and so on.
