Mr. Keith Friedman has been involved in the field of research and development of transportation safety for over 30
years. Since graduating from Cornell Universityís Engineering Physics Department he has been a project and test engineer for Minicars, Inc., and President of Kinetic Research, Inc., MCR Technology, Inc., and now of Friedman Research Corporation. Mr. Friedmanís work has involved all aspects of crashworthiness and impact
protection covering front, side, rear and rollover impacts of all types of vehicles, including passenger vehicles, trucks and heavy trucks. Studies have involved virtually all types of protective systems including, for example, seat belts, padding, airbags, seats, glazing systems, doors, child seats, helmets, and vehicle structures. In addition, his research has included extensive computer modeling and simulation of dummy, human, vehicle (passenger and heavy truck), and component impacts, as well as cadaver testing and live subject testing. Mr. Friedman also conducts vehicle design and occupant protection research, with the vision of supporting manufacturers and suppliers through the development of new products and design approaches to make vehicles safer for occupants. He is on various SAEís committees including the Heavy Truck Crashworthiness Committee, Fire Safety Committee, and Rollover and Side Impact Testing subcommittee among others and is a peer reviewer for various journals. Having published over 90 research papers on the subject of improved vehicle design, automotive safety engineering, and biomechanics.
Jacqueline Paver, Ph.D.
Dr. Paver earned her Ph. D. in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University and has been testifying for more than 15 years. Dr. Paver performs biomechanical analyses of vehicular, industrial, and recreational accidents and provides expert testimony in deposition, arbitration, and trial. She conducts full-scale car crash tests that address collision severity, occupant responses, restraint system effectiveness, and injury potential. She has also performed biomechanical analyses of catastrophic head and spinal injuries in rollover and other vehicular accidents, as well as pool/ocean diving accidents with similar injury potential.
