  1. 1. Vehicle-related injuries with emphasis on fatality prevention

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Mats Öström; Umeå universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fatalities; injury; prevention; traffic; disease; alcohol; helmet; airbag;

    Abstract : According to WHO, Sweden should aim to reduce unintentional fatalities, particularly vehicle-related injuries, by 25% by the year 2000. The aim of this thesis was to analyze vehicle-related injuries and injury events, especially the contributory effects of alcohol and disease and the injury reducing capacity of helmets and airbags in order to point out some preventive measures.

  2. 2. Integrated Pedestrian Safety Assessment: A Method to Evaluate Combinations of Active and Passive Safety

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Nils Lübbe; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AEB; assessment; pedestrian; comfort boundary; driver behaviour; False Positive; integrated safety; airbag; FCW; reaction time;

    Abstract : Pedestrian road casualties are a major concern in many countries. Vehicle safety systems attempt to reduce casualties, and the accurate assessment of such systems is therefore essential. Passive safety assessment is well established, and additional active safety assessment has recently emerged. READ MORE
