The requirements of current automotive testing demand more data than prcviously afforded by the Hybrid II and Part 572 anthropomorphic dummies.
Denton, Inc. has developed a series of multicomponent transducers in an effort to provide more complete answers to complex questions of force measurement in controlled and uncontrolled impact testing. In some institaces the multi-axis transducers work with other previously developed sensors; in other instances they replace the earlier instruments as bolt-in components that are easily removed for calibration.
The specific areas for which multi-component sensors have been produced are: the base of the skull, the lower neck, the thoracic spine, the lumbar spine, the straight spine, the pelvis, the femur, and the lower leg (knee, tibia, ankle-foot assembly).
