Bashing Robots Into Dummies
Protecting Crash Test Dummies With Scientific Advances

Crash dummies need to be safer? Whaaa? I thought Crash Test Dummies were supposed to get crunched to protect humans. I need to rethink my theory in light of this recently obtained video from the IEEE International Conference of Robotics and Automation in Kobe Japan.

They are using robots to smack dummies to make the dummies safer. That’s what they say. My new theory is that the robots are testing the force needed to disable, but not kill, humans so we will remain useful to them during the Great Bot Battle.
