Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs), as known as "crash test dummies", are life-size mannequins equipped with sensors that measure forces, moments, displacements, and accelerations. These measurements can then be interpreted to predict the extent of injuries that a human would experience during an impact. Ideally, ATDs should behave like real human beings while being durable enough to produce consistent results across multiple impacts. There are a wide variety of ATDs available to represent different human sizes and shapes.
The following models have been completed (in at least an alpha version) and are available for download:
