One of the most peculiar activities carried out in
CESVIMAP, from a technical point of view, is, without a
doubt, the Crash tests.
Different types of motor vehicles, such as passenger cars, industrial vehicles, and motorcycles, are subjected to different standardized tests such as, for instance, the RCAR ( http://www.rcar.org/ ) standard tests. RCAR is an organization which gathers together the foremost automobile research centres, who exchange the fruits of their experience periodically, and CESVIMAP is a member. The vehicles are submitted to front and rear crash tests. These and other tests provide very significant data with respect to repairability. The information obtained makes it possible, in turn, to prepare very highly detailed reports in which different models are compared experimentally in the CESVIMAP installations.
