The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers today presented to the National Highway Traffic safety Administration (NHTSA) two new advanced anthropomorphic test dummies representative of a small adult female and a six-year old child. "These new high-tech test dummies will help improve air bag safety for a broad range of vehicle occupants," said Alliance president & CEO Josephine S. Cooper. "Safety for occupants of all sizes is a fundamental concern of the auto industry. These test devices, and others in development, will serve as vital tools for integrating and validating seat-based weight pattern sensors used in advanced air bag systems."
