Daimler trials application of x-ray technology in crash tests

LinkedIn +

Together with the Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics, Daimler is testing x‑ray technology in crash tests for the first time at the Tech Center i‑protect in Freiburg, Germany.

Ultra-fast x‑ray technology produces still images of defined areas in razor-sharp quality during a test. Developments in the technology have now made it possible in principle to look inside safety-relevant components in order to assess their behavior.

Additionally, the data from the x‑ray crash can be combined with computer-based simulation models to further improve reliability of the simulations.
