Applus IDIADA awarded NHTSA NCAP contract for dynamic rollover testing

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has selected Applus IDIADA to conduct the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) dynamic rollover testing activities.

As part of the NCAP active safety tests protocols, the dynamic rollover test evaluates the vehicles’ rollover propensity by performing handling manoeuvres following a fishhook-like trajectory.

Carlos García, at IDIADA USA, said: “This award further enhances our contribution to the NHTSA NCAP testing program and represents a very relevant milestone for the expansion of our active safety services in the US”.

Applus IDIADA has been providing safety testing services under contract to NHTSA since 1996.
