Abstract [en]

In the assessment of road user and vehicle occupant safety, physical testing is limited to a few scenarios. To advance transport safety, it is vital to further develop the test procedures and, for example, to consider additional impact conditions. Virtual Testing (VT) offers an opportunity to introduce such additional scenarios and thus to broaden our safety assessment. 

The current standards in testing consider very few anthropometries, and population inhomogeneity is not appropriately represented. Future safety assessment procedures should thus aim for a more inclusive approach to better embrace diversity of all road users. VT is likely the most feasible technique to assess safety performance in a multitude of impact configurations. VT incorporating evaluation through advanced Human Body Models (HBMs) has not only the potential to expand the 21 current safety assessment with respect to population diversity, but also allows for additional test scenarios and additional injury mechanisms. VT provides a far wider range of occupant specific characteristics than is, and would ever be, viable in physical testing. 

The VIRTUAL project strives to contribute to the development of VT in the crash safety assessment area. It will develop and provide models and procedures needed to conduct VT in scenarios addressing vehicle occupant and vulnerable road users (VRU) safety.
