Experimental Study on Rear-End Collisions Involving Bicycle Carrying Child


The purpose of this study is to clarify the situation of accidents involving bicycles carrying children for accident prevention and damage mitigation. The authors performed two rear-end crash tests in order to understand the behavior of cyclists and children in the accidents. As a result, the value of HIC of the child dummy at the collision with the road surface was much higher than that at the collision with the hood. In addition, depending on the behavior of a child falling to the road surface, it was suggested that the seat belt could lower the risk of child’s head injury.幼児同乗自転車への自動車の追突事故を再現した衝突実験を行い、衝突時における自転車乗員の挙動を調査した。実験の結果、子供ダミーは自動車に比べて路面との衝突において頭部への衝撃が大きくなった。また、路面への落下の挙動次第ではシートベルト着用により子供ダミー頭部への衝撃が軽減される可能性が示唆された。
