The Pioneer of Crash Test Safety

Humanetics Safety is the pioneer of safety systems used across the automotive, aerospace, defense and transport sectors. It is the market leader in the design and manufacture of the iconic crash test dummies, the world most biofidelic anthropomorphic test devices, and a leader in Active Safety test solutions, crash test equipment and calibration platforms that are used to ensure humans are protected at moments of need. Our hardware devices have exact match digital twins and integrated software platforms that provide customers with powerful solutions to maximize the productivity of their crash test programs. Protecting humans in a world in perpetual motion.

Our range of crash test dummy models represent male, female and child anatomies. They are used by automotive manufacturers, safety and interiors suppliers, child car seat manufacturers, and regulators in every region of the world.

We offer a complete portfolio of test fixtures for a crash test laboratory to certify our entire set of ATDs, including tools that enable full body testing as well as all necessary component-level testing. 

Our robotic safety testing equipment, software tools and test facilities are critical to evaluate and improve the accident-avoidance capabilities of advanced driver-assistance systems and autonomous vehicles.

What's Happening

A 70-year Journey for Humanetics

The lineage of the Humanetics organization turns 70 this year, and our mission remains the same. We continue to work with partners all over the globe to explore the wellbeing of critical environments and infrastructure.

Humanetics' desire to focus safety and technology innovation has led to a simplification of the Humanetics structure and a commitment to drive our capabilities through three divisions that will focus on Digital, Safety and Sensor Technology.

The THOR-5F is the first frontal Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD) that is instrumented with sensors to measure impacts where women are most vulnerable to injury.
