When the new safety centre was inaugurated by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf in early 2000, it was one of the most advanced in the car industry a position it has retained over the years thanks to the continuous implementation of new equipment and new test methods. The latest technology infusion is in the form of a set of digital high-speed cameras that can take 200,000 frames per second. The crash-test laboratory has one fixed and one movable test track. The movable track can be adjusted from 0 to 90 degrees, making it possible to carry out tests involving a variety of incident and accident scenarios, from frontal impacts to side impacts, between two moving cars approach at different angles and speeds. Avoidance and mitigation of collision can also be tested. The facility can currently handle more than 400 full-scale tests a year.
