Development of Vehicle Evaluation System for Pedestrian Protection

Yong, Boo-Joong,Cho, Hyun-Deog,Lee, Jae-Wan,


IHRA Pedestrian Working Group has investigated and analyzed the current status of pedestrian-vehicle accidents in IHRA member countries. According to the results, European countries and Japan are working on new regulations to improve passive pedestrian protection on passenger cars significantly. Although IHRA proposed pedestrian test procedures, which may provide a basis of technical regulations in the future, further research and development are necessary to refine the procedures. In order to prepare and satisfy the pedestrian protection requirements, domestic passenger vehicles also should be tested. Among various safety-related studies based on accident data analysis, dealing with pedestrian head injury would be considered one of the keen interests. In this study, the pedestrian headform impact test system is developed. The developed system will be useful to carry out validation study of the test procedures through actual tests using sample vehicles, and to explore the car feasibility level prior to the use of the test methods in legislation.
