A new series of web videos provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the work of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Vehicle Research Center. 

In "Inside IIHS," engineers explain the institute's test programs and highlight some of the equipment that employees use in their research. 

The first video, "Inside IIHS: Crash test dummies at work," is now available on the IIHS YouTube channel. You can learn what kinds of dummies IIHS uses and how they help engineers evaluate vehicle crashworthiness. 

More videos in this series will be uploaded weekly, starting Tuesday, May 21, IIHS said.
