  1. 1. Pre-Crash and In-Crash Car Occupant Safety Assessment

    Author : Alexandros Leledakis; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Crash Configurations; Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ADAS ; Human Body Model; Crashworthiness; Intersection crashes; Occupant postures; Real-world safety;

    Abstract : Tens of millions are annually injured in Road Traffic Accidents (RTAs) worldwide, while the estimated number of RTA fatalities amounted to 1.35 million in 2016. In Europe, car occupants hold the largest share (48%) of fatalities among all road users. The high fatality and injury numbers motivate the work of enhancing road traffic safety. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fatal car crash configurations and injury panorama : with special emphasis on the function of restraint system

    Author : Mats Lindquist; Ulf Björnstig; Anders Kullgren; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Surgery; Deep studies; fatal crashes; small overlap; human FE-modeling; body kinematics; real life safety; Kirurgi; kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Background: Most traffic safety research projects require accurate real world data which is collected in different databases around the world. This is especially important since the results of these projects form the basis for new crash test procedures and standards. READ MORE

  3. 3. Heavy Vehicle Crash Safety - Improved Thoracic Injury Prediction in Frontal Crash Testing

    Author : Kristian Holmqvist; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Finite Element modelling; Pendulum test; Injury assessment; Accidents; Chest injury; Hybrid III; Heavy goods vehicle; THUMS; Crash test;

    Abstract : Frontal crashes are regarded as some of the most injurious accidents for Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) drivers. One of the leading HGV manufacturers regularly conducts frontal crash testing for occupant safety. The Hybrid III crash test dummy was developed for frontal testing in passenger cars and has become the standard in crash laboratories. READ MORE

  4. 4. Types for Crash Preventionn

    Author : Lars Pareto; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : reliability; dependability; concurrent programming; denotational semantics; real-time systems and embedded systems; data-flow; dynamic storage management; applicative functional programming languages ; type systems;

    Abstract : This thesis seeks to strengthen the capabilities of static polymorphic type-checking (as known from typed lambda calculus and functional programming) to allow a larger class of programming errors to be caught at compile time: the goal is to not only prevent illegal uses of data, but to also errors that lead to busy-loops, deadlocks, stack-overflows and heap-overflows. The thesis exploits that, for recursive programs, many correctness properties (including freedom from errors leading to busy-loops, etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Forecasting Indian Road Traffic Casualties: Guidance to Prioritize Road Safety Technologies and Regulations

    Author : Pradeep Puthan Pisharam; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; effectiveness; safety benefit; Accidents; future crashes; vision zero; assessment; evaluation; crash; ADAS;

    Abstract : India accounts for 11% (nearly 150,000) of global road traffic deaths and its fatality rate is 22.6 per 100,000 people, almost three times higher than that of the European region. India is committed to reducing fatalities and has signed the Stockholm declaration to halve the fatalities by 2030. READ MORE
