Quantifying CRS Fit in the Vehicle Seat Environment – Digitization Approach (Multiple Year Project)

Principal Investigator: Aditya Belwadi, PhD, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Automotive interior design optimization must balance the design of the vehicle seat and occupant space for safety, comfort and aesthetics with the accommodation of add-on restraint products such as child restraint systems (CRS). Important to this balance is understanding the breadth of CRS dimensions, especially as CRS design is constantly changing. Quantifying CRS Fit in the Vehicle Seat Environment – Digitization Approach (Year 2)The long-term objective is to gain insight into the geometric dimensions of commercially available CRSs and develop a virtual surrogate capable of being used in the design cycle of an automobile for virtual fitment and packaging.
