VEHICLE INTEGRATION AND EVALUATION OF ADVANCED RESTRAINT SYSTEMS. VOLUME I: PHASE A

The report presents the results of nine full-scale crash tests conducted to evaluate the performance of four advanced restraint systems; RSV Driver Airbag, RSV Passenger Airbag, Force Limited Airbelt, and the Force Limited 2-inch Belt, when structurally integrated into a production vehicle. The vehicle chosen by NHTSA for this was the Volvo 244. The tests consisted of car-to-car and car-to-barrier impacts which were conducted to help determine the performance limits of the four advanced restraint systems in terms of meeting the FMVSS 208 crashworthiness criteria.
