Our Facilities

The CASR Impact Laboratory is a purpose built facility.

Head Impact Test Machine

This machine tests the response of a vehicle surface to a head impact.

It has the following features:

  • Powered by rubber bungie cords
  • Propels a 5 kg headform at up to 80 km/h
  • Highly repeatable headform velocities
  • Fully instrumented to measure the velocity and acceleration of the headform
  • Pivoting arm allows any external part of the vehicle to be impacted from any angle

Leg Impact Test Machine

This machine tests the response of the front of a vehicle to a leg impact.

It uses the same basic technology as the head impact test machine and can accommodate upper or full legform tests at any angle
