Entree is a data entry and validation application, for the Microsoft Windows 7 platforms, developed for the express purpose of assembling data-rich crash test data sets. The NHTSA Office of Crashworthiness Research is making this software available to its contractors, test sites, and the public in order to facilitate the receipt, processing and exchange of this data.
Entree for Windows version 5 (V188.8.131.52) is released to the public !
This update support the following requested functionality:
- Business rules associated with x-y data are in effect. If the x-units field is not "SEC", such as in the case of another measurement type, the time increment will be automatically set to 0. If x-units field is "SEC" but the time increment is not constant, the time increment may now be manually set to 0.
- The "EVNT" sensor attachment had been previously excluded from vehicle test processing. This oversight was corrected.
- The Biomechanics table used to assign sensor attachments for biomechanics tests has been updated to allow the inclusion of sensor attachments measuring radians per second ("RPS").
- Two new dummy codes , "E2" for Eurosid-2 Dummy and "WS'" for WorldSID Side Impact Dummy, have been appended to occupant types.
- In the previous version of Entrée, manual inputs of channel information for vehicle tests was disabled. Imports of channel information were enabled. Both processing options are now enabled.
An individual download of version 184.108.40.206 of the Microsoft Access Database, Ncodes.mdb, is now available. This database includes all the code tables used in Entree. To use this database with Entree, place the database file in the same directory as Entrée, this will replace the database file already in the Entrée's directory.Downloads
