Design and Development of the General Motors Infant Safety Carrier 700042
This paper is a discussion of the design and development of the General Motors Infant Safety Carrier. Specific data and information based on this age group, from birth to approximately 10 months of age, will be examined and explored as they are directly related to the construction and application of this specialized infant safety restraint system. Also, the inherent problems involved in the initial development and designing phases required to produce a safety device specifically adapted for this age group of infants will be presented.
It will consider the unique circumstances encountered to reach the ultimate goal of protecting and securing infants within the automobile when involved in sudden stops or possible collisions. Further, it will explore some of the numerous approaches, procedures, and techniques pursued in areas related to design, testing, restraint properties, and built-in versatility factors of the Infant Safety Carrier.
