Live crash test at PraxisConference Pedestrian Protection
At this year's PraxisConference Pedestrian Protection at the BASt in Bergisch Gladbach, the CTS-team were present with the Biofidelic dummies. Managing Partner Peter Schimmelpfennig presented all innovations and further developments of the dummies produced in Münster. A highlight at this year's event was the crash tests conducted under the direction of test manager Ralf Bührmann. Bührmann and his team crashed three times. Thus, all visitors were able to witness live how the Biofidelic dummy behaves during a collision. The results will be published soon in the VKU.
