Study on Data Acquisition and Measurement System of Occupant Restraint Test Bed
A new occupant restraint system test bed was designed based on the regulations on automotive seat test and safe-belt contact point strength test, which was capable of conducting seat rigid test, safe-belt contact point strength test, headrest performance test. The structure and parameters of the test bed were designed and FE model of the centre frame of the test bed was built with ANSYS to analyze the strength. Then the measuring and control system was developed based on LabVIEW. Finally, the static strength test of automotive seat and safe-belt contact point test were performed to evaluate the test device. The results demonstrated that this device met the test regulation requirements and could be used to conduct further investigation and vehicle design for occupant restraint system.
