DRI Acquires the NHTSA Strikeable Surrogate Vehicle (SSV) for Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) Systems Performance Evaluations

By | Uncategorized

Dynamic Research, Inc. (DRI) has recently acquired and installed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Strikeable Surrogate Vehicle (SSV). This will allow us to conduct NHTSA’s safety related New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) Forward Collision Avoidance and Mitigation, or Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) systems tests. The SSV and the accompanying rail system are installed at the DRI Minter Test Facility. The SSV can also be used to accomplish both the Crash Imminent Braking (CIB) and Dynamic Brake Support (DBS) performance evaluations. Differential-GPS and corrected Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) are used for recording accurate vehicle position, speed, heading, and accelerations for the test vehicle and the SSV.
