A Naturalistic Seating Study of Children in Booster Seats with the PIPER Human Body Model; Frontal and Oblique Impacts in the Vehicle Environment with SCAB and AEB

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

The first goal of this study is to systematically evaluate the naturalistic seating position of the 6YO and 10YO using the PIPER human body model to understand their response (kinetics and kinematics) in frontal and frontal-oblique impacts. A second goal is to use real-world seating conditions, such as a vehicle model with the front seats, SCAB and AEB pulse using a combination of sled testing and computational modeling.
