A SOLID STATE DIGITAL DATA RECORDER FOR MONITORING ANTHROPOMORPHIC DUMMY IMPACT ENVIRONMENTS
A solid state digital data recorder has been developed for use in monitoring anthropomorphic dummy impact environments. The recorder was designed to be a very general minature data acquisition system and was mounted in the pelvic assembly of a 50' th percentile anthropomorphic dummy. An eight channel system was evaluated in a sled test series simulating a 30 mph vehicle-barrier impact. The dummy/recorder system was also evaluated in five vehicle collisions. During these tests the system successfully captured and stored impact information on all thirteen collisions in which it participated. /Author/
