Crash Testing ResearchNeed to speak to an engineer? Contact our team today.
Mr. Kilpatrick participates in motor vehicle crash testing for research by attending the largest motor vehicle crash conference in the world organized by Collision Publishing and ARC-CSI. The purpose is to experience live real-time motor vehicle crashes to observe how each vehicle responds dynamically, and to observe pedestrian and occupant dynamics. From this, Mr. Kilpatrick observes how motor vehicles, occupants and pedestrians actually respond to high speed and slow speed collisions. The vehicles involved in these crash tests are commercially available cars and light trucks, motorcycles, emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks, tractor trailer trucks and anamorphic crash test dummies. Mr. Kilpatrick also observes and studies motor vehicle crash testing conducted by the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute.
