Influence of the Arms on Pedestrian Head Injury at the Time of Vehicle Collision

Various studies on pedestrian protection are currently conducted aimed at improving especially the reduction of head injury criteria (HIC). In order to make pedestrian dummy collision behavior more uniform, engineers have adopted that the arms of dummies must be tied. In this study, the influence of the arms on pedestrian head injury at the time of vehicle collision was evaluated. It was examined that the position of the impact-side arm of the pedestrian dummy was particularly apt to influence HIC.
