This barrier ensures repetitive and correlative results to reflect the protective performance of a motor vehicle with respect to occupants and pedestrians.

Tests can be carried out according to RCAR regulations assessing a vehicle’s damageability and repairability. The assessment includes an estimation of the vehicle damage (physical damage and repair cost) in two impacts: A 15 km/h frontal impact into a rigid barrier and a rigid-faced mobile barrier striking the rear of the stationary vehicle at 15 km/h.
