Occupant Safety in Vehicles Equipped With Automated Driving Systems, Part 3: Biofidelity Evaluation of GHBMC M50-OS Against Laboratory Sled Tests

Current restraint systems and safety evaluation tools are based on a nearly 70-year developmental history, during which one primary factor remained consistent – the general position of the occupants. Automated Driving Systems (ADS) have an opportunity to disrupt this paradigm by allowing occupant positions not constrainedby the need to actively control the vehicle. This report contains the summary report assessing the validity of the responses of the Global Human Body Models Consortium (GHBMC) male 50th percentile occupant (M50-O), Global Human Body Models Consortium (GHBMC) male 50th percentile simplified occupant (M50-OS), and the test device for human occupant restraint – finite element (THOR FE) models against available 30 km/h, 30° sled test, referenced in this report as GS3, each using a postmortem human subject (PMHS).
