      Quick Facts

      Full project name

      Automated Design & Optimisation of Vehicle Ergonomics

      Duration

      Knowledge Foundation

      The purpose of the project Automated Design and Optimisation of Vehicle Ergonomics (ADOPTIVE) is to study the physical vehicle user interaction and develop methodology for advanced vehicle ergonomics analyses within simulation tools.

      The ADOPTIVE project will focus on the assessment and optimisation of vehicle interior geometries and the user accommodation levels of alternative design solutions. This will be done by enabling fast, objective, and automated simulations of virtual driving test procedures performed by a family of manikins and through subsequent ergonomics evaluations.

      What is the industrial need?

      This research project has been initiated and designed in close collaboration with product developers working with vehicle ergonomics in the industry. The industrial need is to have more efficient methods and tools to ensure proper ergonomics in future designs of vehicles to benefit product quality aspects such as user diversity considerations, user experience, and active safety.

      Describe the project from an academic point of view

      From an academic point of view, the project contributes to developing knowledge in the area of efficient decision support in virtual engineering design for ergonomics, including successful consideration of user diversity in design processes.

      The research findings will be implemented and tested in a digital human modelling (DHM) tool, exemplified by the Swedish DHM tool IPS IMMA (Intelligently Moving Manikins).

      The consortium

      The consortium for ADOPTIVE is based on the consortia of previous successful research projects. The previous projects established the foundation for simulations of vehicle ergonomics, and this foundation allows ADOPTIVE to address new research challenges and advance scientific and industrial impacts. Fraunhofer-Chalmers Research Centre for Industrial Mathematics (FCC) will be a research partner on a consultancy basis.

      ADOPTIVE is a part of SAFER

      SAFER is the hub for traffic safety research in Sweden. SAFER consists of 30 partners representing stakeholders within the automotive industry, academia and government agencies.
