|Abstract||Whiplash remains a huge health and socio- economic issue. Additionally, with the increasing automation of our vehicles, a new categorization of car-crashes injuries may arise, as reported in [Sub17]. Thus, the number of whiplash in car crashes is likely to get bigger. Many studies have been investigating the mechanism of whiplash. However, it is still not completely understood as reported in [Lap16] and [Che09]. The biggest reason is that many factors have to be taken into account: dynamics, geometrics, mechanics, cognitive... Whiplash and head stabilization have been traditionally studied with in-vivo volunteers subject to linear acceleration on sleds. In particular, vision has an influence on the head stabilization strategies [San16].
While Virtual Reality (VR) and driving simulators allow setting the visual environment of volunteers, the aim of the study is to compare the head kinematics of volunteers during emergency braking events in a real car versus 6-axis driving simulator under comparable dynamic conditions.
