EVAUATION OF A TELEMETRY SYSTEM FOR USE IN VEHICLE-BARRIER IMPACT TESTS

AN INSTRUMENTATION TELEMETRY SYSTEM FOR USE IN VEHICLE- BARRIER CRASH TEST DATA ACQUISITION HAS BEEN EVALUATED. THIS SYSTEM, ASSEMBLED BY WYLE LABORATORIES OF EL SEGUNDO, CALIFORNIA, IS CALLED THE WYLE ACCIDENT SIMULATION MEASUREMENT SYSTEM. IT CONSISTS OF 7 CHANNELS OF FM TELEMETRY INSTALLABLE IN A CRASH VEHICLE AND 7 CHANNELS OF HARDWIRE TELEMETRY INSTALLABLE ON FIXED BARRIERS. THE SYSTEM INCLUDES 7 ACCELEROMETERS AND 2 SEAT BELT FORCE TRANSDUCERS AND ALL NECESSARY SIGNAL CONDITIONING EQUIPMENT FOR THEIR USE. THE DYNAMIC DATA FROM THESE TRANSDUCERS ARE RECORDED ON A 14 CHANNEL ANALOG MAGNETIC TAPE RECORDER. THE SYSTEM FUNCTIONS ADEQUATELY BUT REQUIRES MUCH ELECTRONIC SUPPORT EQUIPMENT IN ITS USE AND INSTRUMENTATION EXPERTISE FOR MEANINGFUL DATA ACQUISITION. /AUTHOR/
