promote the development of safer vehicles by automobile manufacturers New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) inform car buyers of vehicles safety rating Main Purpose of NCAP Korea NCAP - From 1999 - Based on the Motor Vehicle Control Act Article 32 of 2 (Aug. `02) - Publish the results (Korean only) - Website : www.car.go.kr English version will be available in 2007

Two hybrid 50% male dummy - buckled with a 3-point seat belt - driver and front passenger seats Five step star ( ) rating - based on serious(AIS4) head and chest injuries Door opening & openability, fuel leakage after impact Test methodKNCAPKMVSS Full-wrap Frontal impact against a fixed barrier 56kph48.3kph Frontal Impact Test
Test methodkncapknvss 90 degree side impact with a deformable moving barrier 55kph50kph One Euro SID - buckled with a 3-point seat belt - driver seat Multi-layered honeycomb Five step star ( ) rating - based on head, chest, abdominal, pelvis injuries Door opening & openability, fuel leakage after impact Test methodKNCAPKMVSS 90degree side impact with a deformable moving barrier 55kph50kph Side Impact Test
Rollover Test Calculate a vehicles SSF (static stability factor) at rest Dynamic maneuvering tests - using fishhook pattern - measure the vehicles inside tires lift off the pavement - tip : both inside tires lift at least 50mm off simultaneously Five step star ( ) rating T2H SSF = SSF = T : Track width T : Track width H : Center of gravity height H : Center of gravity height
Test method - vehicle is stopped abruptly at a speed of 100kph - wet and dry road conditions - all vehicle are equipped with ABS Classified into one of four geometric zones Measure distances - from the top of head to the top of restraint - from the back of head to the front of restraint Vehicle stopping distance Stability of vehicle at a 3.5m lane Braking Performance Test Head Restraint Test Brake and Head Restraint Test
Statistics and Future Plan The new car sales of small truck (not more than 1ton) were 9% of all new car sales. The largest share of fatalities in car accident was pedestrian as 39%. The half of frontal crashes was offset crashes. The number of neck injured persons by rear-end collisions were approx. 260,000. There was severe injuries on the head by pole side impact. An Euro SID2 and progressive type honeycomb for side impact test shall be adopted in 2007. Vehicle passenger (22%) Motorcycle (17%) Etc. ( 18%) Pedestrian (39%) Cycle (4%) Distribution of accident fatalities(2005)
Future Plan of NCAP 2007 Pedestrian Head 2009 Offset Frontal 2010 Pole Side Vehicle categories : Add small truck(not more than1ton) for frontal impact and head restraint tests Issued in rule 2008 Pedestrian Leg H/rest Dynamic
