KARCO Engineering's test facility provides three outdoor tracks for dynamic tests:

  • One 1000-foot-in-run concrete track with an immovable concrete crash barrier wall, two camera pits and two vehicle-to-vehicle concrete impact pads
  • Two 850-foot-in-run concrete tracks with a large open test area for roadside barriers, pole tests, dynamic rollover testing and vehicle-to-vehicle impacts.

Test vehicles and/or movable barriers are towed using a precision cable and pulley system designed to provide a wide range of highly accurate vehicle speeds. Precision guidance is controlled by a recessed monorail.
