Automobile Press Club at high-speed crash test
Around 20 members of the Automobile Press Club were present at CTS for a company tour last Friday. Besides a tour of the company premises, a short presentation given by Dipl.-Ing. P. Schimmelpfennig on the range of action and current topics of CTS took place. To end the visit was a high-speed rear impact collision – car vs. truck – in which the participants were all impressively convinced by the acting forces of a collision.
VKS-meeting at crash test facility
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.

To start off the seminar season 2018 here at CTS, the 7th judicial seminar for accident reconstruction took place. Around 90 specialist lawyers, judges and police officers were able to follow a wide-ranging lecture programme presented by Schimmelpfennig + Becke. Of course, as per usual at every CTS-Seminar, the participants were able to watch a high-speed crash test from our secured spectators grand-stand. The new Biofidelic Dummy from our own production was crashed. Further information about the dummy can be found here.
