Here’s a crash test simulation video that Proton is playing at its Power of 1 event happening this week from March 14-18, from 10 am to 10 pm daily, at Bukit Jalil.

From what I understand, what engineers do is actually put in all the dimensions, shapes and specs of the car chassis into a simulation software, where they then perform virtual crash tests, which can be simulated through our understanding of the laws of physics, etc.

From there, they’ll use the results to further tweak the car until they are satisfied with the simulation crash test results. The physical car is then sent for a real-world crash test after the computer-aided design part is done.
