D2: Completion of newborn child dummy (Q0-TNO)

When the CHILD project started, a newborn dummy was not yet available for use in accident reconstructions. TNO was responsible for the development of the Q0-dummy, a dummy representing a newborn child as part of the Q-series. The Q0 dummy is based on up-to-date biomechanical and anthropometrical data and knowledge. It has a total body mass of 3.4kg and a biofidelity requirement for head and neck have been derived. These two body parts are the most vulnerable of a newborn in a car. The Q0 is provided with extensive instrumentation possibilities: head, thorax and pelvis accelerometers and an upper neck load-cell. A limited test program has proven the durability, repeatability and biofidelity of this dummy. At the moment three prototypes are ready for the reconstruction work of the CHILD program. An evaluation phase will run parallel with the reconstruction work.
