This study extends the understanding of how Toyota EDRs respond in low speed collisions with various collision parameters.
To achieve this goal, we conducted sled tests using a variety of collision parameters to determine each ACM's threshold acceleration and to develop regression models to predict the actual speed change from the EDR-reported speed change for each EDR generation and vehicle model.
The full model was used to explore the sensitivity of the ACM response to various collision parameters, whereas the simple model was generated for reconstruction purposes where the collision duration and peak acceleration are not known beforehand.
