Relative impact severity
|Database variable name
Event ranking from highest to lowest Delta V.
The relative impact severity shows the order of the impacts with regard to the Delta V (DV) total [km/h] that the vehicle sustained in each Impact ID. The impact with the highest delta V is coded 1 and further impacts will be coded in order of the descending delta V. If a vehicle only sustains one impact, the relative impact severity is also coded 1. In case two or more impacts have the same delta V, the are ranked in their temporal order.
