Pedestrian Protection - Development Strategies


Euro NCAP annually adjusts details in its pedestrian rating protocols and even U.S. NCAP plans to introduce a pedestrian protection assessment. Stricter injury criteria, modified testing areas and the testing of vehicles that were previously not tested because of their weight, require the thorough knowledge of the requirements and a strict implementation of the requirements in the development process. In the introduction the seminar informs about the different impactors that are used for pedestrian safety testing. Thereafter the various requirements (regulations and consumer tests) are explained and compared. The focus of the seminar is on the development strategy: Which decisions have to be taken in which development phase? What are the tasks and priorities of the person in charge of pedestrian protection? As a background, ideas and approaches towards the design of a vehicle front end in order to meet the pedestrian protection requirements are discussed. In addition to that, the seminar explains how the function of active bonnets can be proven by means of numerical simulation. This includes both, the pedestrian detection that need to be proven with various impactors or human models, as well as the proof that the bonnet is fully deployed at the time of impact.


The seminar is intended for development, project or simulation engineers working in the field of vehicle safety, dealing with the design of motor vehicles with regard to pedestrian protection.
