Crash Test Data included in this issue:

  • Test 1, Intersection Collision.
    Test one was a right angle intersection collision between the 2003 Chevy Tahoe and a 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis. Both vehicles were remote-driven using two RSR Engineering’s Phantom Drivers, which were set up for both vehicles to arrive at the point of impact at the same time, but at different speeds via acceleration control. The Tahoe achieved a speed of 30 mph when it was struck the right front side of the Grand Marquis at 17½ mph. As shown in the video captures from the Grand Marquis’ perspective, the impact caused the Tahoe to rollover.
  • Test 2, Three-vehicle inline collision.
    A three-vehicle rear-end collision with the 1997 Lincoln Towncar, driven via Phantom Driver, struck the stationary Ninja 750 motorcycle into the stationary 2011 Toyota Prius. The Towncar’s impact speed was 40 mph. As shown in the aerial video frames shown in Figure 5, the Towncar’s front bumper outside the bumper structure contacted the motorcycle, which projected it laterally out from between the cars. Vehicle acceleration for all three vehicles was measured via MIDÉ Slam Sticks and the data package included on-board, ground-based, and aerial video.
  • Test 3, Single vehicle rollover turned yaw test.
    The 2003 Chevrolet Suburban K2500 was remote driven via the Phantom Driver with the intention of creating a steer-induced rollover with a double steer maneuver. Five 180-pound ballast dummies filled with salt were restrained in the first and second rear row seats. The vehicle was instrumented with DTS Slice and MIDÉ Slam Stick triaxial accelerometers and triaxial angular rate sensors near the vehicle center of gravity. A string pot was used to measure steering wheel angle and Racelogic VBOX was used to measure speed. Two 40 mph runs were conducted, which resulted in vehicle spinout, but not a rollover.
