At Volvo, the ability to replicate road accidents contributes to
world-class crash safety.
Volvo's crash-test laboratory in Torslanda turns 10 this year - and the
almost 3,000 full-scale tests that have been carried out during the
high-tech facility's first decade have helped give Volvo owners some of the
"We can replicate most of the incident and accident scenarios that take
place out on the roads. By analyzing these and then testing new safety
technology in the crash-test laboratory, we can improve the safety level in
our cars so that they become even safer in real-life traffic conditions,"
says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo.
When the new safety center was inaugurated by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf
in early 2000, it was one of the most advanced in the car industry - a
position it has retained over the years thanks to the continuous
implementation of new equipment and new test methods.
The latest technology infusion is in the form of a set of digital
high-speed cameras that can take 200,000 frames per second.
