Global Human Model Consortium

This effort establishes an agreement with Global Human Body Modeling Consortium (GHBMC) LLC, an on-going effort by several vehicle and equipment manufacturers, to develop and carry-out out a multi-phase research and development program that seeks to produce improved human body models. The comprehensive nature of the approach, involving many interested parties and the use of significant resources, appears promising for the development of improved human body models. The Agency's access to improved human body models will produce a better assessment of the human experience in a motor vehicle crash, which in turn will assist the agency in developing better injury criteria and in understanding injury causation in crashes.
