Autonomous vehicles represent the future of mobility, and future focus of vehicle safety.
As automated driving systems take the driver's seat in controlling vehicles in motion, occupants will be able to focus less on driving and more on relaxing, working or interacting with fellow passengers.
All these new modes present unlimited new challenges for safety testing. New seating positions and new seating directions will require new ways to keep occupants safe from impact and safe from each other during an impact.
Our Autonomous Vehicle Dummies - using the latest THOR technology, with 150 data channels - can adapt to reclined seating positions with a more flexible pelvic structure.
