Development of CAE-Based Crash Sensing Algorithm and System Calibration

State of the art electronic restraint systems rely on the acceleration measured during a vehicle crash for deployment decisions. The acceleration signal is analyzed with different criteria, among which the velocity change is a dominant criterion in almost any existing crash detection algorithm. Sensors in the front crush zone have recently been added to help develop restraint systems that comply with new regulations. This paper presents an initial effort in developing a velocity-based crash detection algorithm.
