Self Study Program 605 – Audi Occupant Protection – Passive Systems II Audi pre sense
VAG SSP 605. Audi has a long tradition to look back on. The company is now over 100 years old. Vehicle safety has a long history behind it, too. The first crash tests were conducted back in 1938. Of course, the crash tests back in those days cannot be compared to modern-day crash tests.
The development of a new vehicle entails numerous crash tests, which are initially performed virtually on the computer and then, finally, on the actual car at the Audi Safety facility. The engineers of Audi AG not only evaluate the results of own in-house tests, but also actual accidents recorded by the accident researchers and scientists at the Audi Accident Research Unit (AARU). The AARU was founded in 1998 and works hand in hand with police and doctors to develop as exact a knowledge of accidents as possible. Using this information, we are constantly working to refine our test scenarios.
The focus of Audi vehicle safety is on people.
When it comes to safety, therefore, Audi relies on its most special workers – its crash test dummies.
