Title: Australia’s Proposal for the Development of Pole Side Impact GTR

Presenter’s Name: Allan Jonas

Economy: Australia

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


JAPAN 2010

33rd APEC Transportation Working Group, Tokyo, Japan, October 10-14 2010

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


JAPAN 2010

33rd APEC Transportation Working Group, Tokyo, Japan, October 10-14 2010

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


JAPAN 2010

33rd APEC Transportation Working Group, Tokyo, Japan, October 10-14 2010

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.


JAPAN 2010

33rd APEC Transportation Working Group, Tokyo, Japan, October 10-14 2010

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

33rd APEC Transportation Working Group, Tokyo, Japan, October 10-14 2010

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
