Measuring of Driving and Impact Dynamics of Cyclists
Z. Radová, L. Nouzovský
pages 250 - 251, full text

The contribution is aimed at detection of cyclists’ dynamics in standard and nonstandard situations. From forensic experts point of view there are significant both, ie. riding dynamics of cyclist and also post-crash motion in case of collision with passenger car. To determine the riding trajectory, it is necessary to devise a measuring apparatus and devise methods for measuring and processing of the collected data. Measuring involves combination of several procedures such as accelerometric measuring, photogrammetry and GPS use. In the term of post-crash motion the paper deals with the biomechanical analysis of load exerted on the child cyclist in configuration typical for cyclists (sudden enter the road or the case of non-giving way; the car front vs. the left side of the cyclists).
