From Program Start to Vehicle Design Freeze, occupant accommodation issues are a major component in the Automotive and Aerospace design decision making processes. Typically, designers are tasked with analyzing scenarios and answering questions such as will the vehicle meet interior packaging needs of the designated target customer population?; Does the vehicle design comply with proprietary comfort standards?; Does the vehicle design comply with regulatory safety standards?; Does the vehicle design comply with regulatory safety guidelines?
To answer these, and other related packaging questions, the Vehicle Occupant Accommodation (VOA) represents an integral component of the Dassault Systemes’ solution specifically designed for vehicle occupant packaging optimization and regulatory conformance. VOA provides a sophisticated set of analysis tools to optimize occupant comfort and occupant accommodation, introducing Human Factors systematically in the vehicle design lifecycle.
Automatic way to predict the driving posture of a specific manikin using the Cascade and Optimization methods
Reduce the time associated with placing the manikin inside a vehicle. Resulting posture is function of vehicle dimensions Template (SAE J1100) and manikin anthropometry
Permits intuitive creation of real-world driving scenarios, such as how a driver would interact with key driving control interfaces such as the steering wheel and pedals
Automatically specifies the vehicle dimensions based on existing vehicle geometries and provides an intuitive way to retrieve the dimensions and locations of specific geometries (seat, steering wheel and pedal) from an existing vehicle design
