Development of Vehicle Active Bonnet System Regarding Variability of Population and Implementing Biomechanical Model Human Body

Project No. TA04030689
State funding provider: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TA ČR)
Programme: Programme of applied research and experimental development ALFA (2011-2019)
R&D Category: Applied research
Primary branch: Other Machinery
Secondary branch: Safety, Health Protection, Human - Machine

Project start: 1. 7. 2014
Project end: 30. 9. 2017 

The aim of this project is to propose inovation the living hinge hood. This development should be based on an in-depth traffic accidents analysis and subsequent testing of conflicts between vehicle and pedestrian using a biomechanical model of the human body. Another objective is to provide a basis for further software development for road accidents simulation in interaction vehicles with pedestrians and enable improvement of the mathematical models used for the calculations. The role of CDV in this project will involve providing maximum available count of relevant data, especially data about road accidents between pedestrians and vehicles gained through HADN and CZIDAS projects, as an input for next processing. The results of the project will be continuously applied to the current methodology HADN, which updates it to the latest findings from the field of analysed road accidents.
