Biofidelity Impact Response Requirements for an Advanced Mid-Sized Male Crash Test Dummy
Published May 19, 2003 by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in United States
The frontal crash is still an important contributor to deaths and serious injury resulting from road accidents in Europe. As the Hybrid-III dummy used in crash tests is over two decades old, the European Enhanced Vehicle-safety Committee is studying the potential for a new test device. Key is the availability of a well-defined set of requirements that identifies the minimum level of biofidelity required for an advanced frontal dummy. In this paper, a complete set of frontal impact biofidelity requirements, consisting of references, description of test conditions and corridors, is presented.
