One whole wing can be moved 90 degrees to simulate anything from a side impact crash to a head-on collision.
An 850-ton, four-meter-high moveable barrier allows offset impacts to be assessed via piezo-electric sensors that can measure around corners.
A crash simulator can launch a reinforced car body into motion on a 30-ton sled as if shot out of a cannon, then bring it suddenly to a halt. The simulator can test the effects of crashes on the interior of a car without actually destroying vehicles.
An NEC SX-4 supercomputer can perform virtual crashes.
