An Application to Certify Anthropomorphic Test Devices 2004-01-1652
Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs) or crash test dummies are an integral part to running automotive safety tests. ATDs require periodic dynamic verification and certification tests to ensure they are responding as designed prior to use in a vehicle crash test. In safety test laboratories, ATD certification has to be completed efficiently and reliably. For high volume safety testing, a PC based software package was required to conduct and manage ATD certification tests efficiently.
This paper outlines a modular application that performs the following functions: conducting ATD verification tests, processing test data, generating certification reports, and managing dummy inventories and scheduling. The application seamlessly integrates off-the-shelf software with visual C++, ASP, and Oracle.
