Large Pickups offer strong Side Protection but falter in Back Seat Safety

Four large pickups offer strong protection in side crashes but fall short when it comes to protecting passengers in the back seat. The Ram 1500 crew cab, Ford F-150 crew cab and Toyota Tundra crew cab - all 2023 models - earn good ratings in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's updated side crash test, while the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 crew cab is rated acceptable.

CERTUS to enable quicker, cheaper and safer Vehicle Automation Systems

article imageHORIBA MIRA and four project partners collaborates to enable the development of better and safer automated driving technologies. Since the advent of basic forms of driver aids in the 1970s, the development of automated driving systems has grown exponentially to encompass increasing functionality. But as this growth in automation has increased, the complexity, time and cost of proving these systems has grown at an equivalent rate.

How much does the Injury Risk between Average Female and Average Male Anthropometry differ?

article imageDifferences in injury risk between females and males are often reported in field data analysis. The aim of this study was to investigate the differences in kinematics and injury risks between average female and male anthropometry in two exemplary use cases. A simulation study comprising the newly introduced VIVA+ human body models (HBM) was performed for two use cases. The first use case relates to whiplash associated disorders sustained in rear impacts and the second to femur fractures in pedestrians impacted by passenger cars as field data indicates that females have higher injury risk compared to males in these scenarios.

Creating safe and reliable Automated Vehicles that can adapt to any Environmental Challenge

article imageThe integration of advanced sensors, control systems, and computational sources is crucial for future automated vehicles, to ensure their safety, reliability, and compliance with regulations. Despite progress by the Cooperative, Connected, and Automated Mobility (CCAM) industry in this regard, and the evolution of robotics, most automated vehicles (AVs) remain trained and tested under optimal weather conditions and with clear visibility.

Virtual Driving Assessment predicts Risk of Crashing for newly licensed Teen Drivers

article imageNew research published by the Pediatrics that driving skills measured at the time of licensure on a virtual driving assessment (VDA), which exposes drivers to common serious crash scenarios, helps predict crash risk in newly licensed young drivers. This study, conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP) at Children s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan, brings the research community one step closer to identifying which skill deficits put young new drivers at higher risk for crashes.
