Based on the Aluminum Honeycomb technology, the AFL MDB-R95 lateral barrier (EEVC WG13) is used by car manufacturers and test laboratories worldwide for the assessment of motor vehicle passenger’s protection in case of side impact collision.
The side-impact test consists in a 950 kg trolley impact on the driver’s side of the test vehicle. The trolley is equipped with AFL MDB-R95 deformable barrier, which aims at simulating the front of the impactor vehicle. The impact speed with the vehicle is defined according to the test specifications. ATD’s dummies are used to evaluate the injuries in this type of crash.
