Published 2017-12-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States
By combining engineered polymeric materials known as hydrogels with complex intestinal tissue known as organoids— made from human pluripotent stem cells — researchers have taken an important step toward creating a new technology for controlling the growth of these organoids and using them for treating wounds in the gut that can be caused by disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Published 2017-11-07 by SAE International in United States
A strong local initiative in Campinas - Brazil is studying how to be more effective in the improvement of road safety in order to align to other worldwide initiatives with similar goals. This paper describes the Brazilian initiative’s approach to the challenge of being aligned with iGLAD (Initiative for the Global Harmonization of Accident Data, starting as a project in 2011 and collecting data since 2007) on the delivery of its first set of accident cases from 2016. The Brazilian source of data started as a pilot project collecting local data with the aim of extending it within the next years to a larger region.

Under-Body Blast Mitigation: Stand-Alone Seat Safety Activation System

  • TARDEC - Sebastian Karwaczynski
  • Paradigm Research and Engineering - Mehmet H. Uras
Published 2014-04-01 by SAE International in United States
This work is based on a current project funded by the United States Army Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program and is being conducted with the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) Ground Systems Survivability (GSS) Team and Paradigm Research and Engineering. The focus of this project is to develop an advanced and novel sensing and activation strategy for Pyrotechnic Restraint Systems, Air Bags and other systems that may require activation. The overriding technical challenge is to activate these systems to effectively protect the Soldier during blast events in addition to Crash, Rollover and Other Injury Causing events. These activations of Pyrotechnic systems must occur in fractions of milliseconds as compared to typical automotive crashes. By investigating systems outside of typical accelerometer based applications and activations, the potential exists to exploit systems that require little power, are self-contained and provide the required output for the desired result. As such Constant-Flux Magnetostrictive Sensors shall be evaluated in a self-contained environment to provide the output during these events. By activating the Pyrotechnic Restraint Systems and Air Bag Systems early in Blast Events, the systems can Restrain the Occupant and provide flail protection from surfaces within the vehicle. As the system is developed various test scenarios will be introduced to activate these systems and design a robust sensing and activating strategy.

A Study on the Quality Assurance for Stable Performance of Passenger Side Airbag

  • Hyundai & Kia Corp. - Hyun Kim
Published 2013-03-25 by SAE International in United States
The FMVSS 208 advanced air bag rule has brought new technologies into the automotive industry. Low Risk Deployment, Suppression, or a combination of both, have prevailed in the industry to meet the right front passenger requirements for FMVSS 208 compliance. This rule provides the options to conduct low risk deployment (LRD) airbag tests with a 12-months-old infant dummy riding in a rear facing child seat and child dummies representing 3 years and 6 years old children. If the LRD tests do not meet the injury criteria set by NHTSA, vehicle manufacturers have to choose the another option for the suppressing airbag system when infants or children are present at the passenger seat. But this suppressing systems is not the cost effective method, also, contains potential quality problem such as misrecognition passenger age. Thus, the car makers start to choose LRD requirement option and develop new LRD passenger airbag system. A low risk deployment passenger airbag system has been developed to reduce the risk of injuries caused by airbag inflation to small size occupants and improve the restraint of adult occupants in high speed crashes as well. The new passenger airbag system has mounted on the instrument panel in such a way to reduce the inflator outputs. This paper presents a new methodology for improvement of airbag deployment using experimental and analytical research. The significant parameters were determined from screening process of the experiment data. As a result of the number of tests conducted at different conditions, this study was able to determine the range of relevant parameters. Additionally, using simulation model, a parametric study was done. It make to figure out main design factors of low risk deployment of the passenger airbag

SMART RRS: Project Results

Published 2012-10-02 by SAE International in United States
SMART RRS is an FP7 SST 2007 RTD1 European collaborative project funded by the EC with the participation of 10 institutions from 5 countries. The project aims to develop a new smart road restraint system that will reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused in road traffic accidents by integrating primary and tertiary sensor systems in it, providing greater protection to all road users, warning motorists and emergency services of danger for prevention purposes and alerting emergency teams of accidents as they happen to minimize response time to the exact location of the incident. This new smart restraint system will:
  • Reduce the number of accidents through better information on the actual state of the road and traffic flow (climatic conditions, traffic flow, obstructions, hazards, accidents).
  • Eliminate dangerous profiles from road restraint systems (crash barriers) that currently endanger vulnerable road users.
  • Optimize road safety by providing exact information of where and when accidents happen in real-time.

When pedestrians or bicyclists collide with a vehicle, the behavior of the whole body is complicated. For this reason, the dummies used for research into injuries caused by collisions are required to mimic the human body faithfully, in terms of how they behave in the event of a collision, in all orientations.

Nearly 50,000 Americans die from brain injuries annually, with approximately half of all Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) being transportation-related. TBI is a critical and ever-evolving safety topic, with equally important components of injury prevention, consequences, and treatment. This book is part of a 3-volume set which presents a comprehensive look at recent head injury research and focuses on injury of the head’s contents and features 13 technical papers. These publications are primarily related to injuries to the brain, its surrounding membranes, and its blood supply. Editor Jeffrey A. Pike has selected the most relevant technical papers spanning the early 1990s through the beginning of 2011, including several older papers which provide an essential historical perspective.
