AB Dynamics is at the forefront of vulnerable road user (VRU) testing solutions. Our Soft Pedestrian Target (SPT) drive system is the world industry standard for highly repeatable, accurate and synchronised car-to-VRU testing.
The system meets the Euro NCAP 2018 VRU Protocol requirement of no irregularities in the test path (6.1.2), the SPT Single Belt System upgrade has been developed specifically for longitudinal testing scenarios. This upgrade consists of a specially designed platform and drive motor add-on kit, which can be quickly installed or removed depending on the test scenario. Technical details can be found below.
To reduce the preparation and post-processing time for engineers conducting the protocol, AB Dynamics has incorporated a special pre-made set of tests within RC Version 8.5 and above. This offers a quick and easy solution to running the 2018 VRU specification.
