Abstract For the robust passenger NCAP(New Car Assessment Program) 5star and the stable neck injury performance, a new concept of passenger airbag has been required. Especially, the deployment stability and the vent hole control technology of the passenger airbag can be improved. According to these requirements, the deployment stability technique has been studied and the ‘Active Vent’ technology has been developed. As a result, these technologies have led to achieve the robust NCAP rating and are applied to the production vehicles.

Abstract In order to improve the handling and stability of a light bus at high speed, a virtual model was established in Adams-Car and its anti-roll bar and bushing parameters were virtually optimized. The tyre mechanical characteristics were firstly tested by using a plate-type tyre tester and the Magic Formula parameters of the tyre were obtained. Then the virtual bus model's handling performance were studied by the simulation of central steering test and steady static circular test. An optimal matching method was put forward. By using genetic algorithm to conduct optimization, the optimised parameters were obtained. After that the anti-roll bar and bushing samples were respectively manufactured. At last, the comparative trials were performed in an automotive proving ground, and the subjective evaluation of the light bus's handling and stability was taken by three specialized assessors.

Abstract First, this paper focuses on classification of near-miss incidents with pedestrian into typical scenarios, and then incident data are analyzed under the assumption that pedestrian detection system has a pre-determinant sensing performance. The data of 220 near-miss incidents with pedestrian when own vehicle goes straight are employed. We proposed a set of eight scenarios which structure is not necessarily hierarchical. The eight scenarios cover about 75% of the incidents. To highlight the characteristics of the eight scenarios, two kinds of vector-diagrams are introduced which illustrate the transition of relative position between pedestrian and own-vehicle, and TTC-TTV (Time To Collision - Time To Vehicle) relation respectively. For example, in a relative position diagram, we can grasp the pedestrian's relative position which the detection system finds the pedestrian first when he/she appeared with pre-determinant wide detection angle.

Abstract The rollcage for WRC race body/rollcage has been developed and optimized by DFSS methodology. It is designed on the principle of reducing it to a Min. of weight compared to the other OEM and the initial set-up model with the torsional stiffness and strength increased. As a result, 12% increased torsional stiffness, maximized strength and 3.7% weight reduction could be achieved. In terms of economics, it is feasible to have a production cost savings of about 11% per car and the effect is further, considering the development period is substantially decreased, 5 to 2 months. Also, in the process of optimizing rollcage structure, applicable items to monocoque body are suggested by investigating the parts and structures that highly affect the body performance.

Abstract When a vehicle is involved in a collision, often a question arises regarding the vehicle's pre-crash velocity. In modern vehicles, velocity data can typically be extracted from the vehicle's Electronic Data Recorder (EDR) via OEM or aftermarket diagnostic tools. However, many modern vehicles - and particularly vehicles operated and/or manufactured in Australia - are not equipped with downloadable EDRs. In these cases, the pre-crash velocity must be calculated based on physical forensic evidence. One method for estimating collision velocity is the crush-energy method, wherein the vehicle is modeled as a spring system. The velocity is then estimated based on the vehicle-specific stiffness properties and on the post-collision crush profile. The vehicle-specific stiffness properties must be derived from a comparable staged crash test. Often, no such crash test exists.

Pallet extensions provide support for items of cargo beyond either the short or the long sides of a pallet, allowing increased volume to be achieved. The extensions are desgtned to suit the contour of wide-bodied aircraft. Each extension consists of a panel or shelf extending upwards and outboards within an envelope bounded by the ULD contour (see Figures 1, 2, 3, and 4). The panel or shelf is secured in this position by means of chains, cables, or structural members attached to the rails of the adjacent sides of the pallent edge.

This procedure establishes a recommended practice for performing a Low Speed Thorax Impact Test to the Hybrid III Small Female Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD or crash dummy). This test was created to satisfy the demand by the industry to have a certification test which results in peak chest deflection similar to current full vehicle, frontal impact tests. An inherent problem exists with the current certification procedure because the normal (6.7 m/s) thorax impact test has test results for peak chest deflection that are greater than those currently seen in full vehicle, frontal tests. The intent of this document is to develop a low speed thorax certification procedure for the H-III5F dummy with a 3.0 m/s impact similar to the SAE J2779 procedure for the H-III50M dummy.
