For terrorist attacks vehicles are increasingly used to rally in crowds or destroy buildings and facilities. Amok drivers represent a further danger.
This latent threat is omnipresent and needs consistent consideration at events as well as at busy places, shopping streets or pedestrian streets. In addition to certified and proven systems, there are currently non-certified and untested offers of anti-terrorism vehicle barriers and access blocks.

This unique event, now in its second session, focuses on this issue, providing up-to-date information exchange and testing systems to protect against vehicle attacks.

Target groups
Police, regulatory and construction offices, armed forces, ministries, manufacturers, associations and organizations, media



  •     Lectures on attack scenarios with vehicles and solutions for safeguarding events, pedestrian zones and buildings
  •     Germany's first technical guideline mobile vehicle barriers, presented by the PTI Police Technology Institute of DHPol German Police University
  •     Standards and certifications for corresponding vehicle barriers and their application
  •     Integration of proven vehicle restraint systems (crash barriers and concrete safety barriers
  •     Simulations and calculation methods of crash tests
  •     Live crash tests with cars and trucks to test current systems (eg mobile and fixed systems)
  •     Product presentations (exhibitors)
