Kistler Helps Increase the Chance of Survival in Crashes

Safety is a central topic in vehicle development. Through accurate measurements and exact recording of the forces, it is possible to lay the foundation for road safety of the future. With more than 50 years of experience in measurement technology and a wide range of high-precision sensors, Kistler is the strong partner for crash tests.

Vehicle safety in focus

The constantly growing traffic volume is making the safety of road vehicles increasingly important. Even though today's vehicles are the safest in the history of the automobile, research strives for constant improvement. To achieve this, the knowledge about what transpires in crash situations is important. Complex crash tests help to come closer to this goal. The collected data form the basis for technological improvements and lay the foundation for a safe mobile future.

Crash tests are based on reliable measurement data

Reliable measurement data allows the developers to make the necessary decisions and implement product improvements. It is important that the measurement data be of the highest quality even during the first attempt of the crash test. To achieve this, one needs both extensive experience in the carrying out of crash tests as well as the best possible sensors.

Saving lives – with high-precision sensors from Kistler

Kistler develops complex measurement systems and high-precision sensors for crash tests. Using the sensors directly in the dummy saves space in the car. The exact and highly reliable measurement data helps the automobile manufacturers make improvements and thereby increase the safety in the vehicles of tomorrow.
