THOR-05F Evaluation/Documentation - R&R and Durability (VRTC) (Evaluation of Repeatability, Reproducibility, and Durability of the THOR-05F ATD)

The THOR-05F ATD is being developed to enable the possibility to address occupant protection concerns for small sized occupants involved in frontal crashes. It is designed to have improved biofidelity and instrumentation as compared to existing small female frontal anthropometric test devices (ATDs). The increased capability of this dummy may also allow it to be used to assess injuries to older occupants, and makes it a prime candidate for being the most appropriate tool for assessing 5th female occupant safety in automated driving systems (ADS) alternative seating arrangements. These projects address ATD evaluation and injury criteria development in the thorax, abdomen, neck , and knee-thigh-hip area
