Automobile companies have been conducting crash tests since the 1930s, and in the middle of the last century, such tests began to be arranged by independent institutes of road safety. During this time, much has changed in the methods of conducting crash tests: in addition to frontal and side collisions, tests have appeared that simulate a car rollover, a collision from behind or a collision with various objects, a collision with large animals.
An elk camel or elk crash test has nothing to do with testing a car during extreme maneuvers. On the contrary, engineers deliberately arrange a head-on collision with a model of this animal weighing about 450 kg at a speed of 70 km / h. Similar crash tests were regularly carried out in Sweden - this is where the largest number of accidents with animals are recorded.
Over the past ten years, crash tests have become commonplace in the passive safety of children. A huge number of independent organizations in Europe, America, Japan are conducting similar tests of child car seats, not to mention testing during the development and certification of these products.
It is logical that the next new safety accessory will require a crash test, which in the future will need to be quickly reconfigured for other new systems in the context of in-line production and fierce competition from other manufacturers.
Let's take a look at how the BEEPTOOLKIT elegantly solves such problems.
One-touch concept design and prototype firmware.
