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.

Computational human body models (HBMs) of drivers for pre-crash simulations need active shoulder muscle control, and volunteer data are lacking. The goal of this paper was to build shoulder muscle dynamic spatial tuning patterns, with a

As the vehicle fleet becomes more equipped with crash avoidance systems, the proportion of crashes preceded by evasive manoeuvres is expected to increase. In an evasive manoeuvre, occupant position and posture can be influenced by the
