Sled facilities

Reproduce inertial effects of real crashes.

ARIES’ sled facilities are designed to perform crash simulations over seats, restraints systems and other components, such as ISOFIX systems or battery tests, for research, development, certification or conformity of production, either over complete vehicles or automotive components.



The complete system includes a sled in a guided track and a combination of different types of propulsion and deceleration technologies to produce different types of deceleration pulses under different overall performances and flexibility.


  • Real time controller: Platform movements command
  • Positioning System: Based on RTK-DGPS
  • Control and Mission Planner Software Station: Mission creation/ modification / sending / position monitoring
