Application for Automated Design & Optimisation of Vehicle Ergonomics (ADOPTIVE) aims at studying physical vehicle user interaction and develop methodology for advanced vehicle ergonomics analyses within simulation tools. The ADOPTIVE project will focus on assessment and optimisation of vehicle interior geometries and user accommodation levels of alternative design solutions by enabling fast, objective, and automated simulations of virtual driving test routines, performed by a family of manikins, and subsequent ergonomics evaluations. Accurate posture prediction models, together with improved virtual human models, can serve as input for human body models used in crash analyses.
