Utvärdering av älgattrappen Mooses II: med sikte på konsumentprovning
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2003 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

Every year about 80 persons in Sweden die or are seriously injured in

accidents involving moose (Alces alces). The weight of the moose in

combination with the tall legs cause the adult moose to hit a normal-sized

passenger vehicle at the same hight as the windscreen, which is a very weak

part of the car. Most of the accidents occur on public roads with a speed

limit of 90 km/h. In this study the moose dummy Mooses II is thoroughly

tested. The report also discusses the different aspects of testing procedure

that need to be considered in a conceivable consumer testing, similar to

EuroNCAP, but covering moose safety only. The report concludes that the dummy

Mooses II is very sturdy and withstands the forces during the tests very

well. To make sure that the damage caused to the vehicles is equivalent to

that caused by a real moose, further tests are suggested. As far as consumer

guidance is concerned, we suggest testing with a straight central hit of the

moose dummy at 90 km/h. Furthermore it is suggested to use crash dummies

(Hybrid III) inside the car for evaluation of the tests according to the

EuroNCAP criteria. In addition, it is suggested that a method for measuring

and evaluating shattered glass is developed.
