RWTH Aachen at crash test
Last week, students from RWTH Aachen were guest at the CTS crash test facility. Besides a detailed guided company tour, Dr. Möhler’s students had the possibility to attend a presentation on the range of areas of CTS before heading to the crash test area. Test manager Ralf Bührmann and his team had prepared a crossroads collision with two SUVs. The participants could watch live which forces act in such a collision.
In Lutterworth, England, this years’ ITAI Crash Conference took place. For this occasion, Peter Schimmelpfennig (Managing Partner CTS) had also travelled there and spoke about the new biofidelic dummies. These were not just presented at the event but were also crashed live. In two crash tests the participants could convince themselves of the physical characteristics of the new dummies.
At this year’s “International Technical Conference on the Enhanced Safety of Vehicles” (ESV) CTS was represented for the first time with an exhibition stand. At the conference taking place in the Netherlands which is supported i.a. by the US-Department of Transportation (NHTSA), the opportunity was given to exchange knowledge regarding the innovative progress on vehicle safety. Of course, the trade fair was accompanied by the new and innovative biofidelic dummy which was presented by Mr. Schimmelpfennig (Managing Partner CTS) and Mr. Mackel at the CTS-exhibition stand.
Security Forum 2019
Under the motto „Mobility and Communication“, decision-makers from business, authorities and scientific communities came together in Fürstenau. The opportunity was offered for Peter Schimmelpfennig (Managing Partner) to present the newly developed biofidelic dummies and to answer questions on the functionality and areas of application.
Automotive Testing Expo 2019
At this year’s Automotive Testing Expo Europe in Stuttgart, CTS presented the new biofidelic dummy. The completely new constructed dummy is the first dummy on the market that can freely stand and also freely sit. Furthermore, a new skeleton type was presented which can optionally be fitted with measurement technology from the company Kistler. Further information on the biofidelic dummy can be found here.
Safety Week and Automotive Testing Expo 2019
Last week CTS took part at the Safety Week and Automotive Testing Expo 2019 in Würzburg. Managing Director Peter Schimmelpfennig presented the latest generation of Biofidel dummies. The biofidelic dummy is the only dummy on the market which can both freely stand and sit. This and many other innovations of the latest dummy generation will also be on display this week at the Automotive Testing Expo Europe in Stuttgart. We would like to welcome you at the CTS booth which is located at booth number 1432. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
Dummies on a journey
Once again, biofidelic dummies from the CTS-dummy manufacture leave the crash facility. This time around though sitting rather than lying down. Usually the biofidelic dummies are shipped in specially designed transportation boxes. This week, however, one customer decided to personally collect the dummies and brought them securely strapped in to their new destination.
Schadenmanagement & Assistance 2019
Once again, CTS was represented at the trade fair congress Claims Management & Assistance in Leipzig with our partner company Accidenta. The focus was not only on the biofidelic dummy from our own dummy manufacturing facility, but also on the new crash test database, which CTS will publish in the coming months.
