Concept for installment of child restraint systems in minibuses: Reprint from Master Thesis at Linköpings universitet in cooperation with The Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI). LiTH-IKP-Ex-2041
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

When small children travel in minibuses, during for example daycare

transports, they seldom have adequate protection in terms of crash safety. To

be sufficiently protected the child should travel in a rearward facing child

restraint system (CRS). The possibility to use such a seat is unfortunately

accompanied by several problems. The main issues are that it can be hard and

time consuming to secure a conventional child restraint system and that the

available space in a minibus is limited. The task is therefore to develop a

new system that makes it possible to easily secure the child restraint system

in the bus, without compromising the space and mobility of the other

passengers. This is done by using the newly developed anchorage system,

Isofix, in combination with a small stand that replaces the bus seat. Testing

and evaluation of the developed system shows that it is achievable with a

simple design to rapid and effortlessly secure a rearward facing child

restraint system in a minibus, and thus giving small children the highest

possible level of safety.
