The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently awarded Diversified Technical Systems (DTS) with a contract to integrate SLICE6, its newest in-dummy DAS, into THOR-50M ATD. THOR will be the first automotive ATD integrated with SLICE6, with plans for WorldSID, Hybrid III and the Q-Series to follow. DTS developed SLICE6 for the US Army Warrior Injury Assessment Manikin blast dummy, which supports more than 150 channels of SLICE6 and the new plug-in sensor solution. At half the size of SLICE NANO – the company’s current in-dummy DAS – SLICE6 reduces in-dummy cabling and connectors by up to 75%. High-speed gigabit IEEE 1588 Ethernet allows PTPv2 daisy-chaining of hundreds of channels per test setup. Data writes directly to flash memory for store-in-place reliability and SLICE6 is compatible with previous generation DTS SLICE and TDAS equipment.
DTS will be exhibiting at booth 8006 at this year’s Automotive Testing Expo Europe in Stuttgart. The show takes place June 5-7 – purchase your ticket now!
