A COMPARISON BETWEEN VOLKSWAGEN AUTOMATIC RESTRAINT AND THREE-POINT AUTOMATIC BELT ON THE BASIS OF DUMMY AND CADAVER TESTS

This paper describes the results of 13 tests simulating a frontal impact against a fixed barrier at 50 km/h and 25 g. The results showed a marked increase in the severity of injuries with increasing age and more frequent chest injuries than head and spinal injuries. The tests were made with two types of restraint systems, both of which seemed equal in occupant protection.
