Biography

Dr. Ono is currently an Executive Research Adviser & Research Director at Japan Automobile Research Institute.
Dr. Ono’s work in detailed accident investigation (pre-crash, crash, and post-crash) and analysis has focused primarily on integrated safety, and not only on occupant protection but also on advanced safety issues for a wide diversity of traffic accidents in the real world. He has also worked on the development of techniques for motion measurement and analysis using numerical simulation and dummies in the laboratory setting. His recent work focuses on disability and impairment injuries involving the head, neck and other vital regions of the body. This is done through a multidisciplinary approach using a combination of experimental, numerical, and epidemiological procedures. In cooperation with experts in clinical and legal medicine, his research envisions integrating pertinent medical and engineering information towards a more effective injury-reduction methodology for actual traffic accidents.  His research findings have made significant contributions in the improvement of advanced safety technology for crash avoidance, crash worthiness, prevention of damage expansion, and upgrading of emergency medical services.
