RWTH Aachen at live crash test

This week Mr. Dipl.-Ing. M. Eng. Marco Görtz and around 20 students from the RWTH Aachen visited us. To begin with was a short presentation on the areas of CTS, before heading on, together with the dummy laboratory manager Dr. rer. nat.

The detailed tour of the company was rounded off with a tour of the extended crash test site and ended, as usual, with a live crash test (lorry vs car).

Two days long, the crash test centre was in the hands of the Association of Independent Motor Vehicle Experts. Saturday was used to follow several guest lectures and to visit the exhibition stands which were set up in the hall. What’s more, also on Saturdays programme was a crash test – a crossroads collision at approx 80 km/h. The local fire department took advantage and used this directly as an exercise for training purposes and rescued the trapped vehicle occupants in front of nearly 100 seminar participants. On Sunday, the general meeting of the VKS took place in the smaller seminar room.
