Within this department, we offer all the tests necessary for vehicle safety development processes, from vehicle crash tests and sled testing to airbag tests and static bodywork testing.
Intelligent systems that respond to specific accident conditions, such as severity of impact, infant, or out of-position scenarios, are the key development challenges facing today’s generation of adaptive restraint systems.
We are able to create highly sophisticated automotive safety systems that meet the specific requirements of the international market.
Side impacts are challenging because of the extremely fast firing times, the need for fast positioning of restraint components, and the requirement for a coherent response by different vehicle areas.
In a rollover, it is usually not the acceleration of the passenger compartment that is the problem; rather, the danger stems from the force exerted by the spinning motion on the parts of the occupants’ bodies, and from the possibility that the entire passenger could be thrown from the vehicle. Counteracting these scenarios requires development of specific protective concepts.
Minimization of injury risk demands careful attention to the possible points of head impact, especially to the upper area of the vehicle’s interior and the dashboard.
Passive and Active System Solutions for Pedestrian Protection.
ContiGuard® integrates all of the components involved in active and passive safety together and combines ambient sensors based on radar, infrared, and camera technology as well as telematics functions.
Our competence in vehicle safety solutions permits us to integrate holistic safety approaches into vehicle systems and to validate them.
We have been operating an acknowledged test institute for most types of safety test for more than 20 years, relying on an experienced team utilizing high-end technology.
