Professor Sundar Krishnamurty and Dr. Doug Eddy from the Center for e-Design at the College of Engineering have designed a Retrofit Seat Belt System that makes it possible to install the safety devices on an estimated 30,000 motor coaches and intercity buses nationwide that currently don’t have them. The seat belts can provide snug protection for bus travelers everywhere, but the retrofits are getting plenty of free play in the media following a recent News Office release. Feature articles quickly appeared in the Greenfield Recorder, the Springfield Republican, MassLive, and on the website of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
