The objective is to determine if controlled engineering changes made to vehicles would be correctly assessed by the Parila Test procedure and whether the Partial Test could be used to give reliable information to an approval authority regarding the need to request a new full scale test.
The work in this project over a number of years lead to the planned introduction of side impact testing in EU type approval testing for new types of cars. Although this project has ended a new project S095A/VF is continuing development work.
