Frontal Impact ATDs

Developed in the 1970’s and 1980’s the Hybrid III series are the most widely used dummies for frontal crash testing in regulations world-wide. A new generation, referred to as the THOR dummies, is slowly taking over. THOR stands for Test Device for Human Occupant Restraint. Using biomechanical data that was unavailable to the Hybrid series designers, all body regions have been redesigned to be more humanlike in response to impact loading. The THOR dummies include extensive instrumentation to assess the performance of vehicle safety systems.

THOR dummies are included in our portfolio. For the Hybrid dummies various parts are offered and design activities are ongoing to provide complete products.
