|Database variable name
Horizontal distance between vehicle mid axis and pedestrian contact point.
The y-measurement for the pedestrian contact is measured horizontally along the y-axis from the centre line of the vehicle to the center of the contact point (in mm).
The variable is only coded for pedestrian contacts with cars, trucks or buses.
See the figure below for an example y-measurement.
The “y-Measurements” on the right side of the centre line of the vehicle should be recorded as positive values (Y +).
The “y-Measurements” on the left side of the centre line of the vehicle should be recorded as negative values (Y -).
