Astrid Linder First Female Crash Test Dummy
Swedish engineer Astrid Linder led a team of academics to develop the world’s first female crash test dummy. The team believes this research can help shape the way cars are made in the future by highlighting key differences between men and women. Some of them include females being shorter and lighter than males, on average, with different muscle strengths.

The height and weight of this crash test dummy was designed for low severity rear impact. Aside from the geometrical differences between males and females, there are also differences in joint stiffness. Since females have less muscles and lower total strength, this corresponds to a lower stiffness between the joints. This Tesla Model 3 with Smart Summon probably doesn’t have to worry about any dangerous crashes, but it should definitely not be used at airports.

I think many new vehicles do provide good safety for both men and women. So the trick here is to actually assess that. So then it would require that it says in the regulation that you should use a model both of an average male and an average female. And today, the regulation tells you that you should use a model of an average male, full stop,” said Linder.
