Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Will the dummy developed in EPOCh be suitable for all directional impacts front, side and rear?

Yes, as with the rest of the Q family, it will be an omni-directional dummy and could be used for all impact directions, but it will be optimised for frontal biofidelity. Experience dictates that side and rear biofidelity may be reduced to provide biofidelity in front impact. A side impact kit may be developed at a later date, outside this project, to achieve greater side impact biofidelity.
