It became clear that airbags and seatbelts reacted differently during a collision depending on the size of person behind the wheel and how close they sit to the steering wheel when driving. These impact tests are called OOP (out of position) procedures. The Hybrid III 5the Percentile Female is only 5’ (152cms) tall and weighs just 50Kgs. This dummy is used to measure the forces found in frontal impact crashes.
The dummy is used in the following crash test regulations:
- EuroNCAP – New Full Width test to be introduced 2015
- US NCAP, C-NCAP, KNCAP – Full Width
- JNCAP, C-NCAP – Frontal Offset Test
