Interactions Between Rear-Facing Child Restraint Systems and the Vehicle Door in Frontal-Oblique Impact Sled Tests

Principal Investigator: Declan Patton, PhD, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

This study builds upon three previous CChIPS studies, all of which used sled tests to investigate the effect of support legs for rear-facing infant child restraint system (CRS) models on anthropomorphic test device (ATD) injury metrics. The current study will use sled testing to quantify the head and neck injury metrics associated with ATDs in rear-facing CRS models for frontal-oblique impacts.

This project is currently underway. Further information will be added in late 2023 following project completion.
