NPACS Dummies
NPACS [New Program for Assessment of Child Seats] committee
commissioned GESAC to design, develop, manufacture and supply a
set of 6 anthropometric, fitting dummies of various sizes. These are
anthropometrically correct dummies and are classified by their weight
and represent various sizes of children using child seats in Europe.  
The set consists of:

  • N9, 9 Kg, 9 month old dummy.
  • N13, 13 Kg, 18 month old dummy.
  • N13, 14 Kg, small 3 year old dummy.
  • N18, 21 Kg, big 3 year old dummy.
  • N25, 25 Kg, 6 year old dummy.
  • N150, 150 cm, 12 year old dummy.

These dummies can be used as ballast in tests as they are not
instrumented.

Table below lists some of the main dimensions of the dummies.
