Effects of Adjacent Seat Positions on CRS Performance in Side Impacts

Principal Investigator: Julie Mansfield, MS, The Ohio State University

Versatility in vehicle seating positions offer consumers the ability to adapt the vehicle environment to their family’s needs. However, it is currently not known how these various seat configurations and obstacles might interact with child restraint systems (CRS) in adjacent seats during side impacts. This study utilizes sled testing to define the performance outcomes of CRS in side impacts under specific seating configurations.
