In the fast pace of the automotive industry the ability to make sound decisions rapidly can be extremely cost effective. Often these decisions involve some important changes to a product in the final development stage or early production stage and are a result of testing the product. The use of high speed video can be a valuable tool in many areas of research and engineering testing because of the ability for instant review. This can greatly reduce the decision making time lag. This paper will describe the use of a high speed video system for automotive barrier safety testing. This application involves using the system to determine the rearward horizontal displacement of the steering column. There is a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard which sets a limit on the rearward motion of the steering column. Having the ability to perform this analysis and get reliable results quickly has proven to be helpful in timely decision making.
