acquisition system (DDAS) features multiple cooperative modules with a
programmable instrumental analog transducer amplifier, 12 bit
analog-to-digital converter, supervisory microprocessor with trigger control
and software UART, and 10 Mbyte of non-volatile FLASH memory.
An non-contact dynamic measurement system for thoracic (chest) deflection in an anthropomorphic manikin or crash test dummy (DOT, NHTSA). Three linear video sensors form a camera, below left, that ranges multiple illuminated source on the an interior of the chest wall of the manikin. The processing instrument, below right, is self-contained, self-calibrated and provides non-volatile storage of the test results and tracking and processing of the video signal to output data communication via Ethernet.
