Heavy crash testing
At the VTI outdoor crash track, unique in the Nordic countries, we can build large traffic environments including slopes, ditches, work zones, and prerequisites for car to car crashes, etc. Also crashes with heavy goods vehicles and buses can be run in this laboratory environment.
The propulsion system on the crash track makes it possible to simulate a collision between a truck and a passenger car, for example.
The propulsion device has the capacity to accelerate a 13 tonne heavy vehicle up to 70 km/h on a section of 95 metres. The accuracy is around ± 5 kilometres per hour.
