The paper deals with tactical and technical contexts of attacks by vehicleborne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs).

The common denominator of attacks is usually to create damaging consequences, especially a large number of dead and injured people. This paper did not focus on the elimination of

Since their assumption is that a complete prevention of these attacks is impossible, the authors formulated some possible solutions, (regarding the technical parameters of the means in particular) to mitigate the consequences of attacks in different ways. Some measures and technical means to mitigate the effects on people are easier to implement while some are more complex and costly.
