Breaking things in the service of science
In this video, Nils and his team crash a randomly chosen older model. This crash helped prepare a complex test setup for a consumer protection crash test. Prototype protection and secrecy are extremely important for our job. That is why we would never crash drive a new vehicle in front of a running camera in the development process.
Nils is a trained body and vehicle builder and certified mechanical technician. He has been working at IAV in Großmehring since 2017.
