The Safety Test Instrumentation Standards Committee is responsible for providing performance recommendations regarding electronic and photographic instrumentation. These recommendations are primarily reported in the document SAE J211. The goal is to achieve uniformity in instrumentation practice and in reporting test results so that there can be a basis for meaningful comparisons of test results from different sources. Specific recommendations are made for dummies used in impact testing. The committee also publishes information reports when requested, such as SAE J1733 (Sign Convention for Vehicle Crash Testing) and SAE J1727 (Injury Calculations Guidlines). Documents are continually being revised and updated. Current subcommittees are: Transducer Equivalency - Currently completing its task of specifying performance requirements for specific types of transducers. Digital Imgaing - Working on revisions to J211/2 to include performance requirements for digital imaging (video) equipment used in data recording. Sign Convention - Updating J1733 with the latest sign conventions for specific dummy load cells.
