Gain decisive insights on comfort and ergonomics

Let us help you design automobiles that are ergonomically ideal for all occupants. Our products and services provide unprecendented insights into human-vehicle interaction that help you innovate quickly and cost effectively.

Applications

  • Optimized occupant package design 
  • Ingress & egress analysis
  • Seating comfort - H-point, lumbar support etc.
  • Driver-vehicle interaction - ergonomics, forces, fatigue
  • Ergonomic design for population anthropometry
  • Assembly line ergonomics
  • Factory exoskeletons (read more here)
  • Pre-collision occupant response 
  • Numerical measures of human comfort, performance
         and more...

“Biomechanical simulations with the AnyBody Modeling System™ made it possible to quantify and determine key design parameters of the Active Motion™ technology very early in the design phase. The key parameters could only have been found through simulations”

Dr. Karl Siebertz, Technical Specialist, Biomechanics Vehicle Interior Technologies Ford Research & Advanced Engineering Europe
