Abstract
The test procedures and results of a series of impacts using the Impact Study Facility's HyGe crash simulator are presented. The work was conducted as the first phase of a two-part contract with Transport Canada, where the objective was to determine the compliance of all commercially-available automobile infant carriers in Canada according to the regulations for buckle and dynamic testing in the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 213.1, "Infant Seating and Restraint Systems". The pertinent regulations in this standard are explained, and the test procedures which were adopted for each are given. Except where noted, the simulated impacts were carried out in strict accordance with the regulations in this standard. The results which are presented in full, demonstrated that all but 2 of the 11 infant seats met all of the regulations in CMVSS 213.1.
