A Finite Element (FE) model of the Chalmers-Autoliv pedestrian dummy was developed and validated. The dummy model was used to • investigate the difference in the assessment of head injury risks by the dummy model and by an EEVC adult headform model • to develop and optimise a pedestrian airbag system. The study showed that the head impact conditions and the calculated head injury parameters of the dummy model were different from those of the EEVC headform model. A properly designed airbag system can effectively reduce head injury risks in a pedestrian accident.
