Paper Abstract

A technique has been developed for measuring the six possible independent motions (three translational and three rotational) of a rigid body. The technique was developed specifically to measure head motions of an anthropometric dummy during simulated oblique and lateral crashes using an impact sled. Under such test conditions, body motions may be highly non-symmetric making a complete three-dimensional analysis necessary.
