Active human body models for virtual occupant response (A-HBM), step 4
Research Project , 2018 – 2021

The FFI project A-HBM step 4 (Active human body models for virtual occupant response, step 4) follows the recently completed project A-HBM Step 3, in which muscle activation methodology was developed and implemented recreating occupant motion in braking and steering maneuvers. The overall aim of the new project is to develop omni-directional models for the whole crash sequence enabling evaluation of collision mitigation and crash technologies using the same tool. The main focus is to also include vertical pre-crash movements. In this project, validation data for vertical movements will be created, and together with data from the A-HBM 3 project, used for validating the model.
