The tests -- the first in Spain to use real bodies -- will be conducted at the Technology and Systems for Safety in Automotion lab at the Motorland science park in Teruel, thinkSPAIN reported Wednesday.
The tests will use bodies of people who agreed before their death to allow their remains to be used for medical experiments. TESSA researchers said the bodies should arrive in the next few weeks.
Researchers will conduct crash tests at various angles, speeds and impacts to study how collisions affect different organs and tissue.
