Published 1994-11-01 by SAE International in United States

The purpose of this SAE Information Report is to further the development of passenger car and light-duty truck restraint systems. This report should aid that goal by: (a) describing standardizing restraint system testing methods so that results from various test laboratories can be compared; (b) serving as a guide in the design and development of restraint systems and in the preparation of detailed procedures for testing and evaluating specific types of restraint systems; and (c) providing an orientation for research in human tolerance to impact and for the development of improved human simulators.

This SAE Information Report discusses the signifcant factors which measure the effectiveness of the total occupant restraint system in commonly encountered collision configurations. The total system includes the components which affect occupant injury by influencing the manner in which the collision energy management is accomplished. In addition to the elements that contribute to impact attenuation, consideration must be given to factors that encourage maximum use, such as comfort, reliability, appearance, and convenience. Hence, system evaluation necessarily involves consideration of the complete vehicle.
