By means of a new test method for simulating automotive percentile male anthropomorphic test dummy designs were quantitatively evaluated. Statistical analyses of replicate steer input to avoid an unexpected obstacle, experienced drivers display more stable performance in the subsequent typical belt, air bag, and vehicle interior configurations revealed the following: (1) The degree of response test results and obtained parameters for both experienced and inexpericned drivers. These indicate that when vehicle mans of certain responses of a pair of identically lose control, while experienced drivers will secure control variances of the respective means were statistically similar; and (3) No one dummy design demonstrated best repeatability characteristcis across all test configurations and measured-response variables. /SRIS/
