Ford Increases Investment in Virtual Crash Computing

Ford Increases Investment in Virtual Crash Computing

ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. — Ford Increases their Investment in Virtual Crash Computing by 50 percent to better the safety of their customers. The technology investment increases the number and speed of virtual crash tests performed each day and allows Ford safety teams to gather data more quickly and efficiently.

Utilizing both physical and virtual crash tests allows Ford to gather safety data at maximum rates and to ensure each Ford vehicle meets or exceeds industry safety standards. Many countries have increased regulations as today's vehicles become more advanced in technology, features, and body styles. However, this workload does not pose as an issue for Ford thanks to their investment in technology and their hardworking team.

Well over 500 engineers around the globe are dedicated to Ford safety, and the automotive brand designs vehicles that are nothing less than top-notch. During the vehicle design process, computer simulations are used in the early stages while crash test verification is used later to make sure each vehicle performs exceptionally. Technology has advanced since Ford's first crash test in 1954; Ford's versatile crash barrier facility can adapt to perform various crash tests, including frontal, side, and rear impact tests to assess restraints and airbag systems. Even though it may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to prepare vehicles for these physical tests, Ford can retrieve the crash data within 30 minutes!
