PASSIVE SAFETY BELT OPERATED BY THE MOTOR-CAR DOOR

The idea of a passive safety belt operated solely by the motor car's door has been rigorously analysed on a mathematical model. By calculation methods, an optimal configuration of the device was produced and a working model built, based on the analytically obtained design specifications. The model proved the feasibility and advantages of the proposed system, which is based on the conventional 3-point safety-belt design and utilises existing car structures. /Author/TRRL/
