In 2020 Euro NCAP introduces the MPDB (Moving Progressive Deformable Barrier) Test. The test execution and evaluation is significantly more complex and demanding. For example, for the first time, the deformation of the crash barrier has to be scanned and evaluated with a 3D scanner.
For this task TEC Competence has developed the TEC Tool - Crash Barrier Analysis. The system solution consists of a Mantis Vision F6 Smart handheld 3D scanner and the Mantis Vision Echo software with fully integrated crash barrier analysis software from TEC Competence.
The workflow from scan to the final result closely follows the Euro NCAP protocol. The TEC Tool - Crash Barrier Analysis was validated through testing at several Euro NCAP laboratories.
