Validation of the human motion simulation framework posture prediction for standing object transfer tasks.
The Human Motion Simulation Framework is a hierarchical set of algorithms for physical task simulation and analysis. The Framework is capable of simulating a wide range of tasks, including standing and seated reaches, walking and carrying objects, and vehicle ingress and egress. In this paper,...
Validation of the static load test for event detection during hands-free conversation
To see if visual event reaction times (RTs) during handsfree conversation conditions in the Enhanced Static Load Test (ESLT) can predict RTs in similar conditions in on-road driving. Methods. Brake reaction times to random center and side light events were measured while watching a driving video,...
Simulating complex automotive assembly tasks using the HUMOSIM framework
Efficient methods for simulating operators performing part handling tasks in manufacturing plants are needed. The simulation of part handling motions is an important step towards the implementation of virtual manufacturing for the purpose of improving worker productivity and reducing injuries in...
Dynamic performance of child restraints with two-point belt securement
Three different models of forward-facing CRS were evaluated dynamically using a two-point belt fixation (FMVSS 213 Standard). Ann additional test was conducted with one same model of CRS but using the three-point belt fixation. Results showed that CRS performance differ strongly according to belt...
An optimization approach to occupant safety and fuel economy in vehicle design
A major challenge in automotive design is the creation of safe vehicles with minimal environmental impact. This study presents a modeling framework for evaluating and optimizing body designs for improved occupant safety and fuel efficiency. Vehicle body mass is considered as the main link between...
Development of new criteria for assessing the risk of knee-thigh-hip injury in frontal impacts using hybrid III femur force measurements
Injury patterns in real-world frontal crashes and the forces predicted in computational simulations of knee impacts suggest that the risk of hip injury is higher than the risk of knee/distal femur injury in most frontal crashes that are similar in severity to those used in FMVSS 208 and NCAP....
Yaw rate error a dynamic measure of lane keeping control performance for the retrospective analysis of naturalistic driving data.
The aim of this work is to define and evaluate a -yaw rate error- (YRE) derived from naturalistic driving data to quantify driver steering performance during lane keeping. This measure of lane keeping performance is based on the predicted kinematic control error at any instance. Scope is limited to...
