Injury Biomechanics and Protective Systems in Car-to-Pedestrian Collisions
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2001

The injury biomechanics of pedestrians in vehicle impacts and research approaches are described in this paper. Of which include identification of injury patterns in car pedestrian collisions, determination of injury mechanisms and body segment tolerance levels, development of method and techniques for injury assessment and safety system evaluation. The possible protective countermeasures are summarized and further studies on pedestrian protection are proposed.
