Laser Speed Measurement Device

Introducing the Laser Speed Measurement Device (LSMD) from the Centre for Automotive Safety Research. Specifically designed to satisfy the requirements of pedestrian sub-system impact testing, it is also suitable for any application requiring highly accurate speed measurement. Counter-timer accuracy ensures speed accuracy to within ± 0.1% in most applications.
