SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulation (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collection of information: Title: Pediatric Shoulder Response in Frontal Loading. PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46253 Type of Request: New collection. OMB Clearance Number: None. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from date of approval. Summary of the Collection of Information: NHTSA proposes to collect information from the public to support the development of design criteria for the mobility of the shoulder of a new child-size crash test dummy. Minors age 8–12 will participate after informed consent of the parent/guardian is received. After researchers measure the participant’s anthropometry (height, weight, shoulder landmarks, etc.), the participant will undergo a fun, lowintensity exercise activity under the direction of the researchers while the parent/guardian observes. The activity will involve motion of the participant’s shoulder while resisting forces are collected. The data from all participants will then be compiled to develop design criteria for the crash test dummy shoulder. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information: In the early 2000’s, NHTSA evaluated the Hybrid III 10-year-old child dummy. While this dummy was deemed adequate for the evaluation of large child restraints and eventually federalized in 2012, one of the shortcomings NHTSA identified of the child dummy is a shoulder that has very little mobility with no interaction with the ribcage. In 2011, the NHTSA Vehicle Research & Test Center Applied Biomechanics Division initiated a research program to develop a new crash dummy representing a large child with improved biofidelity called the Large Omnidirectional Child (LODC) dummy. NHTSA used pediatric biomechanical information from literature to guide the design of the LODC prototype. However, there was very little biomechanical information on the response of the pediatric shoulder. As the shoulder is a very important structure of the body for managing interaction of the restraint and body in a motor vehicle crash, new biomechanical data is needed to guide the design of the LODC shoulder. Historically, child dummy component responses have simply been scaled from adult post-mortem surrogate tests. However, there is a large body of research that has demonstrated that children are not simply small adults when it comes to behavior in a highspeed crash scenario. Developmental anatomy must be considered in addition to mass and anthropometry in the creation of design targets for child dummies. E:\FR\FM\12SEN1.SGM 12SEN1 46254 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 177 / Wednesday, September 12, 2018 / Notices Because testing of pediatric postmortem surrogates raises ethical concerns, researchers are compelled to find creative ways to gather biomechanical information from living children. The historical approach for obtaining body region response information is to design a fun, lowintensity activity or game where the participant movement is captured in some manner while resisting forces are collected. The forces generated with respect to the movements are used to develop a ‘‘response target’’ that serves as design guidance for the relevant crash dummy component. Respondents: We estimate that 24 persons will complete the information collection. Respondents will be parents of children age 8–12. Estimated Number of Respondents: In support of this research, it is estimated that 24 children age 8–12 will complete the activity while the parent observes. Estimated Time per Response: The child and parent will be required to spend roughly 1 hour in the laboratory to complete the required steps associated with the activity. Total Estimated Annual Burden: 24 hours, or 1 hour per participant. Frequency of Collection: The data collection described will be performed once to obtain the target number of valid test participants. Authority: 44 U.S.C. Section 3506(c)(2)(A).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), before an agency submits a proposed collection 
of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in 
the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise 
consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning 
each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated 
regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under 
OMB's regulation (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d), an agency must ask for public 
comment on the following:
    (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic 
submission of responses. In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA 
asks for public comments on the following proposed collection of 
information:
    Title: Pediatric Shoulder Response in Frontal Loading.
    Type of Request: New collection.
    OMB Clearance Number: None.
    Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from date of 
approval.
    Summary of the Collection of Information: NHTSA proposes to collect 
information from the public to support the development of design 
criteria for the mobility of the shoulder of a new child-size crash 
test dummy. Minors age 8-12 will participate after informed consent of 
the parent/guardian is received. After researchers measure the 
participant's anthropometry (height, weight, shoulder landmarks, etc.), 
the participant will undergo a fun, low-intensity exercise activity 
under the direction of the researchers while the parent/guardian 
observes. The activity will involve motion of the participant's 
shoulder while resisting forces are collected. The data from all 
participants will then be compiled to develop design criteria for the 
crash test dummy shoulder.
    Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the 
Information: In the early 2000's, NHTSA evaluated the Hybrid III 10-
year-old child dummy. While this dummy was deemed adequate for the 
evaluation of large child restraints and eventually federalized in 
2012, one of the shortcomings NHTSA identified of the child dummy is a 
shoulder that has very little mobility with no interaction with the 
ribcage. In 2011, the NHTSA Vehicle Research & Test Center Applied 
Biomechanics Division initiated a research program to develop a new 
crash dummy representing a large child with improved biofidelity called 
the Large Omnidirectional Child (LODC) dummy. NHTSA used pediatric 
biomechanical information from literature to guide the design of the 
LODC prototype. However, there was very little biomechanical 
information on the response of the pediatric shoulder. As the shoulder 
is a very important structure of the body for managing interaction of 
the restraint and body in a motor vehicle crash, new biomechanical data 
is needed to guide the design of the LODC shoulder.
    Historically, child dummy component responses have simply been 
scaled from adult post-mortem surrogate tests. However, there is a 
large body of research that has demonstrated that children are not 
simply small adults when it comes to behavior in a high-speed crash 
scenario. Developmental anatomy must be considered in addition to mass 
and anthropometry in the creation of design targets for child dummies.

[[Page 46254]]

    Because testing of pediatric post-mortem surrogates raises ethical 
concerns, researchers are compelled to find creative ways to gather 
biomechanical information from living children. The historical approach 
for obtaining body region response information is to design a fun, low-
intensity activity or game where the participant movement is captured 
in some manner while resisting forces are collected. The forces 
generated with respect to the movements are used to develop a 
``response target'' that serves as design guidance for the relevant 
crash dummy component.
    Respondents: We estimate that 24 persons will complete the 
information collection. Respondents will be parents of children age 8-
12.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: In support of this research, it is 
estimated that 24 children age 8-12 will complete the activity while 
the parent observes.
    Estimated Time per Response: The child and parent will be required 
to spend roughly 1 hour in the laboratory to complete the required 
steps associated with the activity.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden: 24 hours, or 1 hour per participant.
    Frequency of Collection: The data collection described will be 
performed once to obtain the target number of valid test participants.
