First simulations performed with morphed models within SAFER
An important milestone in SAFER's work on human body models was reached this fall. Now the first morphed models have been used in simulations; reconstructions of real accidents within the Injury-HMB project. These morphed models are models that have been scaled from the mid-sized male SAFER THUMS human model into the sizes of the real occupants in the accidents. This milestone was celebrated with cake and the sweet Santas in different sizes on the top illustrate the morphed models. This development makes it possible to make more realistic reconstructions, i.e. create human models as the person involved in the accident was in size, age and gender, and to start creating a family of individuals for vehicle developments.
Many thanks to all involved in the activity, as well as the "Assessment of Passenger Protection in Future Cars" project who provided the models.
