GRSP Informal Group to Develop a GTR on Pole Side Impact

  • Factors Driving Development of a GTR

  • Safety Need

  • Different regulatory and non-regulatory pole side impact tests in different countries/regions

  • Progress in developing WorldSID

Safety Need

  • Australian experience

    • Over 10% of all Australian road fatalities are from pole side impacts (i.e. side impacts with narrow objects)

    • Over 15% of all occupant fatalities in M1 vehicles are from pole side impacts

    • Around 25% of all Australian road fatalities are from side impacts of every kind

    • Over 30% of all occupant fatalities in M1 vehicles are from side impacts of every kind

  • Data is currently being collected on other countries’ experience, but indicative data indicates pole impacts and side impacts more generally are a major safety problem internationally

    • Fatalities from side impacts in the UK and the US are well over 20%

    • APROSYS estimated there were 10,000 deaths a year in Europe from side impacts

    • Pole side impacts are likely to produce a smaller share of serious injuries than fatalities, but these injuries are frequently serious head injuries

    • In-depth accident studies have shown head injury to be the most common cause of death in car-to-car side impact crashes in Japan (43% of cases).

Different Pole Side Impact Tests

  • EuroNCAP (and ANCAP)

    • ES-2

    • 29 km/h

  • US has commenced phase in of an oblique (75°) angle test in regulation (FMVSS 214)

    • ES-2re and SID-IIs

    • 26-32 km/h

  • APROSYS has recommended a perpendicular offset (100mm) test

A Common Regulatory Standard

  • A rigorous and common regulatory standard is highly desirable

  • It should significantly reduce pole side impact fatalities/serious injuries, while requiring countermeasures to protect the head and thorax that will reduce other types of side impact fatalities/serious injuries

    • It may also reduce rollover fatalities (about 20% of the Australian road toll)

  • It will also provide a common standard for vehicle manufacturers

WorldSID

  • Progress on WorldSID provides a unique opportunity to develop a global pole impact standard

  • WorldSIDbiofidelity rating of 7.6 (ISO TR9790)

    • ES-2 – 4.7

    • ES-2re – 4.2

  • The Informal Group on WorldSID is finalising development of WorldSID 50th percentile male and 5th percentile female for regulatory use

Formation of GRSP Informal Group to Develop a GTR on Pole Side Impact

  • March 2010 – Australia submitted an informal document proposing development of a GTR on Pole Side Impact to the UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP29) (WP.29-150-11)

  • May 2010 – the Australian proposal and additional paper (GRSP-47-28) were considered at the Working Party on Passive Safety (GRSP). GRSP recommended establishment of an Informal Group.

Formation of GRSP Informal Group to Develop a GTR on Pole Side Impact

  • June 2010 – WP29 considered Australia’s formal proposal for a GTR (WP.29/2010/81) and agreed to develop the GTR and to establish an Informal Group.

  • WP29 also agreed that the initial tasks of the Informal Group should be to

    • (i) confirm the safety need for a GTR in light of the increasing prevalence of the electronic stability control in the vehicle fleet and

    • (ii) simultaneously assess potential candidate crash test standards to be addressed by the proposed GTR

  • WP29 was clear that establishment of safety need and development of GTR should occur simultaneously

The Informal Group

  • Chaired by Australia (Robert Hogan)

  • First meeting – Bonn, 16-18 November 2010

  • Extensive Government and industry membership

    • Government members include the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, France, the European Commission, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the Republic of Korea and China

  • Further members from APEC would be most welcome

Crash tests

  • An immediate task for the Informal Group is to assess potential candidate crash test standards, including variations to these standards

  • Australia has recently conducted sets of 3 crash tests on two different vehicle models using two WorldSID 50th percentile males borrowed from Transport Canada

    • The tests were perpendicular, offset perpendicular and oblique at 32 km/h, with WorldSIDs seated in both the driver and front passenger seats

  • Australia gave a report on these tests in the recent WorldSID meeting, but will provide a more detailed presentation in Bonn in November

    • Other informal group members are expected to report on relevant tests
