Frontend structure for the MPDB (Mobile Progressive Deformable Barrier) Frontal Crashtest

With this Crash Management System, KIRCHHOFF Automotive has further developed one of its core products in order to meet the requirements of passive safety according to the Euro NCAP guidelines with the new MPDB test. In the event of a crash, the energy input is distributed and absorbed over a large area.

In this way, all those involved in a crash are to be protected. If a large, heavy vehicle collides with a small, light vehicle, the risks for the occupants of the latter are often many times higher.

The reason for this lies in the structures that are often not tuned to each other, so that the smaller vehicle usually absorbs a larger proportion of the energy.

The CMS, specially developed for the MPDB test, acts like a protective shield and focuses not only on the safety of the person responsible for the accident but also on the safety of the other party involved in the accident.
