Restraint system technologies (e.g., air bags, seat belts, seats, etc.) are continually advancing and are a major contributor to mitigating crash fatalities and other related injuries. However, a significant number of crash injuries still occur, and efforts are ongoing to further improve restraint effectiveness. This book presents a summary of the work performed during the Advanced Restraint Systems (ARS) project.

The primary objective of this effort was to evaluate the potential benefit of using pre-crash information associated with two unique crash configurations (one vehicle-to-vehicle scenario and one vehicle-to-object scenario) to tailor an advanced restraint system to the occupant and crash type. The project work encompassed the Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) analysis of these two crash modes, as well as the identification, development, integration and physical evaluation of a prototype advanced restraints system within a targeted baseline vehicle environment.
