Once you’ve completed a test plan and logistical arrangements are made, your confidential testing is conducted at CAPE in the presence of the customer representative(s), if desired. Test events are recorded by still cameras and by high-speed digital imagers placed in selected locations that provide multiple views of crash events. Observation rooms provide opportunities for the customer to observe testing. CAPE offers an office space and internet connection that gives customers the capability to stay in contact with the home office during their visit.
When testing is completed, CAPE technicians conduct a post-test vehicle walk-around with the customer representative to complete the test picture with the use of video and audio narration. This service provides the customer with a tool that simplifies communication of test results with decision-makers not present for testing. Upon request, high-resolution video and photos are collected for use in product promotions.
Customers have full use of an equipped machine shop for fixture fabrication. Secure work bays accommodate virtually any size vehicle for test preparation and fabrication. CAPE staff members can quickly respond to testing challenges, including component modifications as required.
