Human body models – possibilities and challenges

Autonomous driving has serious consequences that affect the behavior of passengers, for example. Therefore, real crash tests are increasingly limited in realistically depicting the wide variety of possible injury scenarios. That makes innovative simulations of such situations increasingly important.

The “Human Body Modelling in Automotive Safety” conference builds upon these new developments and focuses on current computational models for human bodies in vehicles. With these models, the effects of various different accidents on the human body can be realistically assessed.

The main conference themes include:

  • Modelling based on active and passive safety measures
  • Calculating active muscle contractions
  • Models for the pre-crash phase
  • Modelling based on age and gender

The conference is the result of a cooperation with the “THUMS USER COMMUNITY – TUC”. Prof. Dr. Steffen Peldschus from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich and Dr. Henry Bensler from Volkswagen AG will take the lead.

With sufficient demand, we can also offer international guests simultaneous translation.

Who should take part

The conference is aimed at professionals and executives in the fields of simulation and calculation, CAE and human modelling from the following areas:

  • Vehicle safety (active, passive, integral)
  • Vehicle safety advance development
  • Crash calculation/simulation
  • Ergonomics
  • Methodology
  • Biomechanics
  • Human Machine Interface
