An Airbag-Safe Infant Seat 971123

A rearward-facing infant restraint (RFIR) planned for use in the front seat of a vehicle equipped with a passenger-side airbag has been prototyped and subjected to crash tests under FMVSS 213 test conditions-- including a deploying passenger airbag and a CRABI 6-months old dummy. This RFIR design is discussed in detail, including energy management assumptions, design objectives, and the preliminary development testing.The RFIR prototype's design development test data are compared to a set of evaluation criteria. The results indicate the potential value of this rearward-facing infant restraint for controlling the motion, forces, and accelerations an infant could be exposed to during airbag/infant restraint interaction.
