A Graphic Computer Simulation of the Pedestrian Vehicle Impact 820170
This paper presents an interactive computer simulation of the pedestrian/vehicle interface. The simulation presents the results in an easy to analyze format including animation of the whole event. User requests for specific output data is available via a graphic menu.
The model employs the use of the MacLaughlin/Daniel Computer Simulation developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. To illustrate the usefulness of the graphical and pictorial output, the results of a pedestrian/vehicle impact are presented.
