ANTHROPOMORPHIC DUMMY POSITIONING REPEATABILITY, AND STABILITY TESTS

The Part 572 anthropomorphic dummy is used to evaluate the performance of automobile passive restraint systems built to meet the requirements of FMVSS 208. Dummy position at the time of vehicle-barrier impact is regarded as a significant variable in the evaluation of the restraint system. Effort in this program therefore was directed toward evaluating two dummy positioning procedures as to repeatability of placement in the vehicle and as to the stability during vehicle motion prior to barrier impact. A positioning procedure for use with FMVSS 208 is recommended.
