The study determines optimal vehicle designs and performs a sensitivity analysis of these designs. The vehicle design is to be optimal in that the designs minimize pedestrian fatalities in computer simulated pedestrian/vehicle impacts. Sensitivity analyses will be conducted to determine the changes in pedestrian injuries resulting from changes in the optimal design. The report describes the techniques which have been developed for optimization and sensitivity analysis and describes the computer program which will be used for the study.
