(R) Performance Specifications for Anthropomorphic Test Device Transducers
|Publication Date:||1 November 2019|
This SAE Recommended Practice defines the minimum performance specifications for sensors used within anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs) when performing impact tests per SAE J211. It is intended that any agency proposing to conduct tests in accordance with SAE J211 shall be able to demonstrate that the transducers they use would meet the performance requirements specified in this document.
The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for choosing sensors for use in ATDs in impact testing. The aim is to provide uniformity in transducer measurements, and provide a basis for meaningful comparisons of test results from different sources.
Field of Application
The transducer specifications defined in this document apply in particular to those transducers used within ATDs, and whose outputs are used to calculate various injury estimates. The transducer specifications also apply to sensors used for the calibration and positioning of ATDs.
