An Automated Head Impact Process Setup for Automobile Instrument Panel (IP) Application

View Presentation

FMVSS 201 procedure originally rolled out in 1968 by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Administration to protect the automobile occupants from fatal injury during the crash. Since the beginning of the law, the automobile interior safety has become considerably more challenging for manufacturer to meet FMVSS 201 standard criteria. During the course of instrument panels (IP) development, engineers are heavily relied on computer simulation to optimize the design for a more robust design. Based on FMVSS 201, there are an infinite number of target points on the instrument panels that must be tested for head impact performance. Therefore, this becomes not only costly but it is impossible for the manufacturer to test all possible target points using the current conventional process.
