Additional Force Elements for the implementation of biomechanical human body models which can be used to analyze ride comfort, handling, occupational safety or other man-machine interactions. A compatible human-body-model generator is available at www.biomotion-solutions.com.
Biomotion Car Driver for Simpack is a unique solution to analyze the driver-steering interaction in a MBS-simulation. Implementing a human driver model as an "actuator" for the steering wheel in a Simpack car model enables the analysis of the mechanical interaction between the driver and the vehicle. As acceleration values for steering wheel and back- or headrest are strongly influenced by the driver, the Biomotion Car Driver enhances the prediction quality of simulation based drivability rating.
A motion controller for a highly detailed rider model, designed for motorcycle dynamics analysis using SIMPACK Automotive. This module allows the virtual rider to steer the bike by arm movements and not only by artificial steering axis torque. Thus, MC-Rider accounts for realistic rider-handlebars interaction, and makes it easier to study resonance effects that may lead to unstable riding models.
Hand-Arm System (HAS) for Power Tools is a motion controller designed for Biomotion Force Elements. This allows a virtual human operator to hold a power tool in a desired working pose with one or both hands, while maintaining predefined pressing forces. The controller is designed to be used with handheld power tools for vibration exposure minimization or handling comfort optimization, and can also be used for power tool performance optimization.
