Soft Car 360
Soft Car 360 is the official vehicle target for Euro NCAP 2020 testing
Soft Car 360 is a lightweight, durable vehicle target with the proven ability to perform the Euro NCAP 2020 LSS test at a closing speed of 144kph. It has been adopted by Euro NCAP and NHTSA as the Global Vehicle Target for safe ADAS testing.
The structural design of the Soft Car 360 body results in unparalleled aerodynamic stability at speeds of up to 120km/h, essential for ensuring that the target is reliably recognised by test vehicles’ ADAS sensors.
Accurate resemblance from all directions
With a combination of photo-realistic outer skin and built-in radar reflectivity, the Soft Car 360 body has been extensively tested by AB Dynamics and its customers to ensure that it is recognised as a real car by ADAS sensors.
The standard vehicle body is a Fiesta, but AB Dynamics can also offer a Smart Car, and custom bodies are available on customer request.

A robust design
Even with its focus on minimising test vehicle damage, the soft Scooter 360’s design does not compromise on robustness; the scooter section of the target has been wrapped in a hard-wearing vinyl skin and it is capable of withstanding impact speeds up to 60 km/h.
