Crash Test Dummies are those popular figures used in safety tests of vehicles.
They are replicas of people in one-to-one scale, with the weight and joints created to simulate the human body performance in case of collision. Dummies are equipped with lots of instruments to collect information as much as possible about values such as speed, compression, bending or torque as well as deceleration during a collision.
Nowadays, this kind of figures are indispensable in the development of new models of vehicles: from cars to air crafts. And, as we can observe, they are also a recurrent element when promoting safety and health at work or, of course, road safety.
