VEHICLE EXTERIORS AND PEDESTRIAN INJURY PREVENTION. VOLUME 1. SUMMARY REPORT
The objectives of the research were basically threefold: (1) To statistically analyze 263 pedestrian accident cases to search for injury causation factors; (2) To develop a method for quantifying the level of injury or severity a pedestrian accident victim sustains; and (3) To develop a mathematical model of the pedestrian accident victim, to validate the model through the use of a limited number of experimental tests, and to exercise the model to study the sensitivity of pedestrian accident severity to vehicle exterior design parameters.
