The Hybrid III 5th Female Crash Test Dummy was developed by industry in collaboration with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Biomechanics Subcommittees, CDC and Ohio State University. The dummy represents the smallest segment of the adult population. In 2013 Cellbond was asked by a major car manufacturer to produce a version of the pelvis assembly to help with availability issues.
The Hybrid III 5th Female is a complex assembly of parts, developed and fine-tuned to comply with specific performance criteria that have been developed over many years. Its various plastic moulded and metal parts are manufactured with high accuracy to ensure all performance criteria are met. The HIII 5th undergoes various certification tests prior to being used in a crash test setting.
