Abstract: In the past, one of the problems associated with automotive crash testing has been the difficulty in reproducing the desired initial position of the dummies within the automobile. With the increased complexity of the crash dummy design and automobile variations, crash testing became more important and the significance of properly positioning and orienting the crash dummy increased greatly. As part of an ongoing effort to learn, predict and assess injury as a result of automotive accidents, new and more advanced crash dummies are being designed and tested. In the forefront, GESAC Inc., located in Kearneysville, West Virginia, is currently working on a contract for National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to design and build the next generation crash test dummy for automotive safety testing.
Keywords: electrolytic sensor design, solid-state inclinometers, tilt sensing, automotive crash testing
