New tutorial - Driving models by means of motion capture marker trajectories

We have just completed a new tutorial that explains some of the intricacies of driving models kinematically by means of motion capture marker trajectories. The tutorial is an extension to the lesson about kinematic measures here:
http://www.anybodytech.com/500.0.html

The tutorial takes a simple approach and uses a simple 2-D pendulum model to explain the techniques, possibilities and pitfalls.

Comments to the tutorial are most welcome. It is very much your feedback that allows us to improve the technology and documentation.

Human Modelling and Simulation in Automotive Safety

A recent symposium organized by carhs GmbH on Human Modeling and Simulation in Automotive Safety with speaker from Wayne State University, GM, Ford (US), TNO (NL), ESI-Group (F), AnyBody Technology, and others included several presentations arguing for the use of active models like the AnyBody model to explore issues of active safety (pre-crash occupant behavior). Other speakers recommended the use of such models to investigate low-g accidents like roll-overs. Read the summary from Aschaffenburg, Germany, here.

AltSoft, Inc. appointed reseller for Korea

AnyBody Technology works towards establishing a global network of partners reselling our technology. Our objective is to find partners sharing our view that the reseller over time will evolve to become a local partner for AnyBody clients in his region with respect to training, support, and consulting assistance.

We welcome our new partner in Korea, AltSoft, Inc. based in Seoul. Please feel free to contact us or your local AnyBody representative at your discretion.
