Evaluation of Side Impacts with a Frontal Component for Children in CRS (Multiple Year)

Principal Investigator: Kristy Arbogast, PhD, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

This project quantifies kinematics and injury metrics for 3 year old anthropomorphic test device (ATD) in oblique side impacts with a focus on assessing the potential for head injury, thus fueling understanding of head injury mechanisms for rear, center-seated occupants. This project, with its focus on an understudied area, will assess the need to prioritize future research and development efforts for car restraint system (CRS) manufacturers in the center or far side test mode and will provide valuable response data in diverse impact conditions using the new Q3s ATD as industry builds its fund of knowledge about the performance of this ATD.
