Abstract
The analysis of complex movement processes in the development of engines and major components using high speed cameras follows a long tradition at Mercedes-Benz. Already in 1 939 aircraft engines were perfected with the help of a high speed film crnera. In 1959 we carried out the first passenger car crash and rollover tests - this at a time when the concept of "crashworthiness and accident safety" was still insignificant. It was then that my fascination for high speed film analysis began which, from then on, was never to leave me. Other investigations resulted in the rotary engine and prechamber and fuel injection systems - not forgetting the developent of the airbag which, without the use of high speed cameras, would, without doubt, not have reached the high standard of development it enjoys today.
