Fully-adaptive Seatbelts for Frontal Colllisions


The goal of this paper was to demonstrate the potential for a fully adaptive restraint system to significantly reduce injuries. To accomplish this, a three-bodied model of a 50 percentile Anthropometric Test Dummy (ATD) in a 35 mph frontal collision was made using Lagrangian Dynamics. The model was verified against test data obtained from NHTSA… (More)
