On the Validation of Human Body Models with a Driver-inthe-Loop Simulator

  author={Fabian Kempter and J. Fehr and N. Stutzig and T. Siebert},
For the development of modern integrated safety systems, standard simulation models of anthropometric test devices, often called crash test dummies, are inappropriate for Pre-Crash investigations due to missing activation possibilities, tuned characteristics for one specific accident scenario and high passive stiffness properties [1]. To validate safety concepts getting active prior to the crash new tools like suitable virtual models of human occupants are required. Human Body Models (HBM… Expand

Muscle Activation Strategies in Human Body Models for the Development of Integrated Safety
Human Body Models (HBMs) have been used in crash safety research for some time, and are now emerging as tools for the development of restraints systems. One important challenge in the development ofExpand
Driving Simulator Use for Pre-Crash Tests
This paper presents the first experiment managed as part of the Sciences and Technologies for Safety in Transport (ST2) program, a French national research project. In this program, human physicalExpand
Evaluation of an Active Multi-Body Human Model for Braking and Frontal Crash Events
Active safety systems that start to act moments before the crash might be capable of anticipating the occupant’s position, either by correcting it, or by taking the out-of-position into account. ForExpand
Incorporating muscle activation dynamics into the Global Human Body Model
Over 20 million injuries result every year from motor vehicle collisions, with injuries to the neck being among the most prevalent. Muscle activity has been shown to affect head and Expand
Passenger Kinematics and Muscle Responses in Autonomous Braking Events with Standard and Reversible Pre‐tensioned Restraints
Muscle activity, predominantly in the cervical and lumbar extensors, increased soon after vehicle deceleration onset for all volunteers wearing the standard belt, and all muscles were significantly more active during braking than normal driving. Expand
Implementation and validation of the extended Hill-type muscle model with robust routing capabilities in LS-DYNA for active human body models
BackgroundIn the state of the art finite element AHBMs for car crash analysis in the LS-DYNA software material named *MAT_MUSCLE (*MAT_156) is used for active muscles modeling. It has three elementsExpand
Flexible multibody simulation of automotive systems with non-modal model reduction techniques
The stiffness of the body structure of an automobile has a strong relationship with its noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) characteristics. In this paper, the effect of the stiffness of the bodyExpand
The Efficiency of PRE-SAFE®Systems in Pre-braked FrontalCollision Situations
Vehicle safety today is evaluated on the basis of standardized crash tests. The goal is to classify the level of safety using tests which can be reproduced and repeated at any time. In laboratoryExpand
Determination of pre-impact occupant postures and analysis of consequences on injury outcome. Part I: a driving simulator study.
This paper considers pre-impact vehicle maneuvers and analyzes the resulting driver motion from their comfort seating position using the LAMIH driving simulator to determine scenario of positions for numerical simulation of a frontal collision. Expand
Simulator motion-drive algorithms - A designer's perspective
It is contended that, with enough effort, most algorithms can be massaged to perform reasonably well, and that a more important consideration is the ease with which a given algorithm can be brought to high performance levels. Expand
