High Speed Impact [electronic resource]: Hidden Toll

ABC International
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Fatalities are the most tragic outcome of auto accidents, but in societal terms, injuries involving irreversible brain damage may exact a higher toll. In this program, a team of the auto industry's leading researchers reconstruct an actual side-impact crash to explore what happens to the human brain in a collision. Specialized crash-test dummies, high-speed X-ray cameras, and computer simulations are used to capture crucial information. The dangers of four-wheel drive vehicles, particularly SUVs, are also examined as part of ongoing initiatives to improve design safety.
