European Enhanced Vehicle-Safety Committee

WG09: Side Impact

Side Impact Test Procedures (1988)

EEVC Working Group 9 over saw the development of a new European side impact test procedure which involved the development of a new generation of side impact dummies (EuroSID-1) A side impact test procedure which has become ECE Regulation 95. This also involved the development of a specification for the impacting object which was a moving trolley onto the front of which is fitted a deformable element representing the front of a standard vehicle

EuroSID-1
European Side Impact Dummy
A humanlike crash test dummy specially developed, by the members of WG9, to assess the severity of a side impact crash in terms of occupant injury risk.
