Toyota updates injury analysis solution
28th March 2023Tweet
Toyota has enhanced its vehicle safety research with further developments to Total Human Model for Safety (THUMS), its software programme for computer simulation and collision analysis.
The latest advances take into account changes in posture when drivers are using automated driving systems, with specific modelling for men, women and children and more accurate analysis of the geometry and properties of key body parts, including the pelvis, abdominal organs, spine and ribs.
The programme is now able predict the impact on human bones, organs and muscles when vehicle occupants are in a reclined position, and can reproduce how people will brace in different positions and scenarios.
For example, the body reacts differently to seat and restraint systems when a person is in a reclined position, while the effects of an impact can also change if a person is sitting up but has adopted a new posture.Tweet
