The Rod Herriott award is presented to the best poster presentation at the Injury Biomechanics Symposium. The award consists of a plaque commemorating the achievement along with a cash award for each winner.
Rod Herriott was a motor vehicle safety researcher at the Transportation Research Center in East Liberty Ohio for 39 years. He worked as a Mechanical Technician, an Engineering Technician, and Supervisor. He spent most of his TRC career at the Vehicle Research and Test Center (VRTC), NHTSA’s vehicle safety laboratory located at TRC in East Liberty OH. His early projects at the VRTC included design and fabrication of test equipment, testing of vehicle components and airbags, and work with crash test dummies. Throughout his career, Rod spent countless hours training new engineers and students the ins and outs of biomechanics research and testing.
