Study of Balance between Comfort-Improvement and Safety-Improvement for Design Parameter of Seat and Seatbelt (First Report)
Published May 23, 2012 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
It is reported that the seat arrangement with rotating seat inward or outward improves occupant's comfort. In this study, the influential factor of seat for injury risk when seat rotates is discussed for the purpose of balance of frontal collision safety. Although it generally seems that there is a tendency that injury risks increase with the seat arrangement and balance improvement, frontal collision safety is achieved with the proper rotational degrees of seat back and the type of seat belt.
