AutoTRIAGE: clinical, computational & biomechanical investigation of the feasibility of using vehicular event data recorders for assessing head trauma

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Design Engineering

Abstract

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading injury type amongst vehicle occupants, with serious cases requiring the deployment of substantial emergency service resources. The purpose of this research is to explore the feasibility of using data recorded by the embedded sensors on a vehicle to instantaneously indicate the severity of TBI experienced in a collision and rapidly direct the deployment of emergency service resources, maximising the likelihood of a positive outcome. The implementation of AutoTRIAGE within vehicles has the potential to significantly reduce the impact of road traffic collisions on the number of deaths and serious injuries.
