A Computer Method to Calculate Occupants’ Pre-Crash Kinematics under extreme braking in Rotated Seat Arrangements

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities


The introduction of automated Level 5 driving technologies
will revolutionise the design of vehicle interiors and seating
configurations, improving occupant comfort and experience.
It is foreseen that pre-crash emergency braking and swerving
manoeuvres will affect occupant’s posture, which could lead
to potential interactions with a vehicle interior trim and occupantsu to occupant’s head collisions. A method is proposed to calculate the occupant’s head envelope inside vehicle cabins in rotated seat arrangements.
