For years, crash test dummies, referred to as an anthropomorphic testing device, have been used to test how much damage can be endured when a crash occurs. These dummies are usually wired with sensors, and during a crash test, the sensor can record the force of the impact caused by the crash.

This information influences the way that cars are. Crash Test DummyBackgroundLike a fashion mannequin, the dummy looks like a human, but its more-than-skin-deep beauties consist of high-tech instrumentation and a state-of-the-art physique.

And like the ventriloquist's version, the crash test dummy can't speak except in a highly effective series of television commercials for seat belt safety. The design of a first Anthropomorphic Test Dummy was then approached: design requirement of the first prototype, named A1 was to match a 50th percentile male anthropometry, in analogy with experiences in the car crash testing with Hybrid III dummies.

The dummy was developed by adding to a wooden CNC machined trunk two. anthropomorphic test device (atd) rental options Calspan has a variety of Hybrid II and Hybrid III crash test dummies and associated available for rent.

These crash test dummies can be utilized for conducting tests to standards, for reconstruction, for investigation and for photo shoots.
