Biomechanics in Autonomous Vehicles: A Pilot Study to Explore Responses of Pediatric Occupants in Non-traditional Seating Conditions

Student Investigator: Jalaj Maheshwari, MS, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Autonomous vehicle seating designs have non-traditional seating positions, which potentially give rise to new impact conditions. Using computational modeling, this study explores the implications of non-normative seating conditions on booster seat-restrained pediatric occupants in simulated high-speed rear impacts.
