In this paper, an approach to design an idealrestraint system is discussed. The problem, normally solved byoptimization approaches, is translated to a tracking problem,where a given reference trajectory has to be tracked. Before acontroller can be designed, identification of the local dynamicinput-output behavior is performed in several operating pointsusing stepwise perturbations added to the input. Using theobtained model, a stabilizing controller is designed with loopshaping for performance. Results are shown for the design ofthe belt force, such that the maximum chest deceleration ofthe driver in a frontal crash test with 56 km/h crash velocity,is minimized. A reduction of 60% of the maximum chestacceleration is achieved.
