Pedestrian Injury Protection By Car Design 856112

Remaining concerned with the problem of pedestrians hit by cars, the European Experimental Vehicle Committee (EEVC) has set up an ad hoc group on pedestrian accidents, with the following tasks: formulation of appropriate recommendations with regard to car design, survey and coordination of European research projects and activities, and cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The report will present the conclusions of this group: 1) progress that has been made in the relevant knowledge since EEVC Working Group 7 published its report (presented at the ninth ESV Conference): accident analysis, injury mechanisms, and tolerance levels and development of tools for protection assessment: mathematical models, pedestrian dummies, and component impact devices; and 2) means and prospects for improving pedestrian protection: guidelines to be considered for protection policies and future regulations; short-term recommendations; and priorities for future research.
