Q-Series

  • Standard Q0 ATD 047-0000

In the early 1990s, statistics showed that there was much room for improvement in the design of child restraint systems (CRS) in vehicles. The existing P-Series of child dummies used for testing CRS had a simple design and were limited in their measurement capability.

Our Q-Series of child dummies were developed in 1993 as successors to the P-Series in the hopes of giving engineers the information they needed to design greater impact protection for children in cars. This new generation of dummies has much better anthropometry, biomechanics and kinematics, all key to better evaluating the risk of injury to varying ages and sizes of child passengers. The Q-Series can be used in frontal or side impact testing, and the instrumentation is interchangeable within the dummy series.

The Q0 child dummy represents a six-week old infant. The mass in inertia are based on the anthropomorphic data collection called CANDAT (Child Anthropometry Data) and is designed as a tool to evaluate the protection offered to newborn children by appropriate child restraints used in cars.
