Pedestrian Safety PT-112

With research being focused on two major fronts - methods to sense the presence of pedestrians and warn drivers of their location, and ways to design vehicles that can help not only adults of various age groups to survive an impact between them and a vehicle but also children that are smaller than most adults - the 12 technical papers in this SAE Progress in Technology Series book explore ways the automobile can be designed to help reduce fatalities and injuries when a pedestrian and vehicle meet during an impact. Some of the paper titles include:
  • The Virtual Stiffness Profile - A Design Methodology for Pedestrian Safety
  • Engineering Thermoplastic Energy Absorber Solutions for Pedestrian Impact
  • Pedestrian Throw Kinematics in Forward Projection Collisions
  • Comparison of Pedestrian Subsystem Safety Tests Using Impactors and Full-Scale Dummy Tests
  • Head Injuries in Vehicle-Pedestrian Impact
  • Body Concept Design for Pedestrian Head Impact
  • The Development of Procedures and Equipment for European Pedestrian Impact Protection Requirements
