- Being an independent engineering house,
INDUS has pioneered several innovations in the automotive industry starting
from a “clean sheet of paper” approach without any constraints on material
or manufacturing process.
An illustration of this
application development is seen in the
SAE paper prepared and presented by INDUS:
"Head Impact Protection using a Light Weight Composite
Tubular Structure". SAE paper 2000-01-0638. Copies of this paper can be
obtained from www.sae.org.
- INDUS has assisted in the “technical marketing” of new technologies developed by Tier1/Tier2
suppliers. Based on INDUS’s expertise, specialized testing protocols and analysis methodologies are
deployed to compare/contrast the new technology with competing technologies and highlight the
differentiating elements. Also, in collaboration with the suppliers, technical articles and papers
showcasing such studies are prepared and presented in industry forums such as the Society of
Automotive Engineers and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
- INDUS's principal
engineer has also been involved in several advanced research
effort funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
in the areas of:
Advanced Integrated Safety Seat
Pick-up Truck/SUV Rollover Crashworthiness
Frontal Crash Dummy Development
Heavy Truck to Car Aggresivity Mitigation in Frontal Crash.
