Development of Occupant Restraint System for SUV - Telco Experience 2003-26-0027
This paper briefly describes the development process of an occupant restraint system with emphasis on the objectives and the approach towards resolving conflicting requirements from some of the objectives. Possible solutions and a number of testing and simulation capabilities developed are discussed.
The methodology (workflow) consists of conceptualisation, feasibility study for target setting, design, component development, Occupant Restrain System (ORS) optimization, Electronic Control Unit (ECU) tuning using crash tests and system validation. Dependencies between these activities are also discussed.
This paper also briefly describes measures taken to ensure safe working of the ORS in various real life situations.
