VIRTUAL: Open Access Virtual Testing Protocols for Enhanced Road User Safety
The overall objective is to improve the safety of urban road users by providing procedures and open access tools to assess the benefit of novel safety systems. The goal is to establish a European based global hub for Open Source Virtual Testing freely accessible on the internet and to demonstrate its success in traffic safety. Open Source Human Body Models (OS HBM) of both men and women will be developed in a format that is scalable to represent all different ages and sizes for both car occupants, vulnerable road users and users of public transport.
