  • Digital models are used in research, not in vehicle development. They don't take the place of crash dummies, which measure the effect of forces on the body. They're used as a way to understand how to further improve restraint system effectiveness through better understanding of injury mechanisms. (03/31/2011)

  • Pediatric Crash Dummy: The prototype pediatric abdomen insert is similar in size and shape to that of a 6-year-old child and is made of multiple layers of liquid silicone that, when solidified, forms a tough silicone shell. Inside is a set of electrodes immersed in a conductive fluid that comprise the sensors for the abdomen - six electrodes at the front of the abdomen and one reference electrode at the back.
