This publication begins with a basic introduction to human anatomy and injury terminology and concepts. The book then examines, by body region, the types of injuries which may occur in automotive collisions. Injury scaling is also discussed, including such techniques as the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS), Glasgow Coma Scale (GSC), and Injury Priority Rating (IPR). Automotive Safety concludes with a discussion on the regulatory framework and biomechanical basis of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 208 and the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Chapters cover: Terminology Anatomy and Injury Injury Scaling Regulation and Testing. Well-illustrated, the book also includes an appendix that contains various safety laws and regulatory documents which are referred to in the text. An essential reference for all automotive safety professionals and an ideal resource for anyone needing a better understanding of this important topic.
This engineering textbook is designed to introduce advanced control systems for vehicles, including advanced automotive concepts and the next generation of vehicles for ITS. For each automotive control problem considered, the authors emphasise the physics and underlying principles behind the control system concept and design. This is an exciting and rapidly developing field for which many articles and reports exist but no modern unifying text. An extensive list of references is provided at the end of each chapter for all the topics covered. It is currently the only textbook, including problems and examples, that covers and integrates the topics of automotive powertrain control, vehicle control, and intelligent transportation systems. The emphasis is on fundamental concepts and methods for automotive control systems, rather than the rapidly changing specific technologies. Many of the text examples, as well as the end-of-chapter problems, require the use of MATLAB and/or SIMULINK.
