Human Modeling and Simulation 2014

Human Modeling and Simulation in Automotive Engineering

Munich, October 2014
25 presentations, pdf download

The application of numerical simulation incorporating digital human models characterizes the next exciting step in automotive development. Applying human models in comfort, ergonomics, occupant safety and other disciplines promises to overcome limitations imposed by the use of real humans or their mechanical surrogates. Computer simulations with digital human models provide better understanding and deeper insight into comfort, ergonomics and safety issues and thus enable further optimization of automotive designs.
