Given the legal requirements for quality assurance of passenger car exhaust emissions worldwide we define our quality assurance system and present the emission laboratories of the Mercedes-Benz assembly plants Sindelfingen and Bremen. We developed a hierarchically structured, multi-level computer system, which enables us to automize emission test procedures, calibration, maintenance of measurement systems and documentation of exhaust data. Test cell computers coordinate the different components of the test cells and perform maintenance and calibration of measurement devices, thus guaranteeing a high measurement quality with reasonable economy. The coordinating level computer, the emission host system (EHS), processes test parameters, controls and supervises the test sequences and evaluates the test results on a statistical basis.

The purpose of this research was to present and analyze a previously unreported mechanism of injury within the automotive crash environment - spinal burst or compression fractures due to a vertical force component. Spinal burst fractures are comminuted fractures of the vertebral body which are often associated with retropulsed bone fragments into the spinal. Compression fractures are less traumatic fractures of the vertebral body with minimal comminution. Both fracture types can have varying degrees of neurologic deficit. The mechanism of injury is hypothesized to be a high energy compressive load along the axis of the spine initiated through the buttocks and pelvis or through torso augmentation (inertial loading of the lumbar spine by the torso). Four crashes are presented as evidence of this injury mechanism within the automotive crash environment: two in the United States and two in Germany.
