LATCH Vehicle Anchorage Usability Survey
May 26, 2010 to March 15, 2014 This project evaluated vehicles to identify features that make LATCH hardware easier to use.  A follow-on component of the study specifically looked at tether use.  This study's results allowed the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to implement a LATCH usability rating system.  Publications...
Pre-WIAMan Testing
May 1, 2012 to February 18, 2016 Develop test protocols and equipment to collect impact and injury response measures needed to specify a blast dummy.
Side Impact (Task 1) sub of-Biomechanical Research Support
April 20, 2013 to April 19, 2014 Perform biomechanical testing to characterise human force/displacement respons under realistic side impact conditions.
Lower Extremity (Task 2) sub of-Biomechanical Research Support
Using computational modeling, evaluate effect of subject anthropometry on lower extremity injury risk in crashes.
Warrior Injury Assessment Manikin (WIAMan)
Perform biomechanical testing to measure injury response to vertical loading in support blast dummy development.
Assessing Tether Usability, Instructions, and Labeling in Pickup Trucks
March 7, 2016 to November 30, 2016 This project evaluated tether usability and alternate labeling in pickup trucks.  A follow-on component dynamically evaluated alternate tether anchor locations that might be suitable in pickup trucks.
