European Enhanced Vehicle-Safety Committee

WG10: Pedestrian Protection

Pedestrian Protection (1989)

EEVC WG 10 were responsible for the study of how pedestrians are injured when struck by vehicles. Full vehicles testing with dummies coupled with computer simulation studies directed the development of aa series of subsystems tests.

Simple computer simulation of a pedestrian into a car impact.

Four different types of sub-system test developed by the Working Group
