X-Rays for crash testing being devised
The initiative allows for very close examination of the interiors of components as they deform in crashes. The information gained will also be used to improve computer simulation of crash tests.
It is in association with partners Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics, Ernst-Mach-Institut, EMI from Freiburg from the i-protect Tech Center established last year by a number of partners, including the University of Stuttgart.
The group is also examining how occupant restraint systems will have to be evolved as more automated driving develops and more sophisticated monitoring of occupants in such an environment.
