“Experts in safety”

Optimal safe constructions

All products need to be safe, that is certain. Especially consumer goods need to meet high safety standards to be able to be launched on the market. At Code, we take the newest high-end safety legislations into calculation during the product development process. We use this knowledge to design optimal and safe constructions.

The latest safety standards for Child Car Seats

With our built-up knowledge about the most recent international safety requirements, we are able to develop products according to the latest standards. A few of the measures that we have already incorporated in our work are the European UNECE-R129 and the US FMVSS213 legislation standards on child car seats.

High scores in consumer ratings

Consumer ratings like performed by STIWA/ADAC, EuroNCAP and Consumer Reports become more and more important in designing child car seats. Mastering these consumer assessment testing procedures in our approach is key to providing our customers with valuable design solutions.

To keep ahead of the developments in product development, we continuously invest in improving our simulation methodologies and educating our team about the latest safety requirements.

Developing a child car seat with Code means:

  • A license to sell is guaranteed: UNECE-R129 & FMVSS213
  • Highest consumer rating by incorporating specific crash requirements in the design
  • CAE-driven process: Fastest time to market with the lowest integral cost
  • Development of a group 1 car seat from 2007-2009 without prototyping & proto testing, completely based on CAE-driven design
  • Structural layout of the first i-Size-ready seat (up to 105 cm) in 2012. Again no prototyping & proto testing
  • CAE-driven design of several infant carriers between 2008 and 2014
  • Improvement of virtual Madymo dummy performance vs real-life dummy, (ATD) testing
  • Architectural layout using CAE-based optimisation for several child seat designs



Safety in side impact for the smallest passengers in our cars is an important safety aspect, since cars do not exhibit a large energy absorbing structure for accidents with side impact. At Code, we use our extensive knowledge of car and child seat crash analyses to research and design robust side impact technology for our customers, without relying on add on parts. We believe it is crucial to provide real safety and to avoid consumer misuse of side impact devices.


After applying simulation analyses in the development of a product, physical tests must usually be conducted as well. At Code, we think along with our clients. To speed up the development process until the launch to the market, we have partnered up with several test institutes. Our partners, such as TASS International, CHILL, Intertek, AZL and UL provide support in the physical testing of prototypes.
