A New Crash Test Device- “Repeatable Pete” 730983

A new crash test device has been developed, called “Repeatable Pete.” It is a repeatable, durable anthropomorphic dummy with humanlike dynamic performance. This paper describes the device and gives details of its design and performance during testing in automotive situations. The head, neck, and chest match the latest biomechanical information on the dynamic responses of unembalmed cadavers. The head c.g. accelerations adequately match the skull acceleration, so that head injury criteria based upon cadaver skull acceleration may be used.
