The Response Characteristics of Various Impact Patterns on the Smart Bumper of Automotives


Article Preview

In this paper, a pendulum system is constructed to perform the fundamental research which is concentrated on the various frequency patterns of impact-object simulation tests. We confirmed the application possibility for the method of discriminable pattern recognition whether impact-object is human-like or not via frequency analysis using smart sensors. Therefore a specific experimental data are compared and analyzed with the obtained database within a short time period. The impact analysis system, which is based on the above processing, can be developed and then used to recognize the impact information measured by smart sensors.
