Hybrid II

The 2nd generation Hybrid ATD

Announcement / Release
around 1972


Hybrid II was introduced in 1972, with improved shoulder, spine, and knee responses, and more rigorous documentation. Hybrid II became the first dummy to comply with the American Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) for testing of automotive lap and shoulder belts. Though a great improvement over cadavers for standardized testing purposes, Hybrid II was still very crude. Its use was limited to developing and testing seat belt designs.
