Crash Test Dummy Certification Service

At a glance

Millbrook maintains a fleet of crash test dummies, also known as Anthropomorphic Test Devices or ATDs, and routinely certifies them in-house to ensure quality test data. It also calibrates the instrumentation within the ATDs. These services are available externally to other safety test facilities and organisations.

The crash test dummy certification process includes a series of tests designed to verify the biomechanical properties of the ATD and typically takes a day. The crash test dummy certification tests comply with legislative requirements and latest approved industry standards.

Millbrook carries out ATD certification for other test laboratories and customers who do not have certification facilities. Millbrook’s dedicated ATD certification laboratory is equipped to certify the most current crash test dummies, such as P, Q, hybrid and other dummies. It stocks a range of dummy spare parts to ensure quick turnaround and availability of ATDs for upcoming full scale crash and sled facility tests.

Millbrook’s own ATD fleet is available for hire.
