      VIVA - the Virtual Vehicle Assembler

      User Centred Product Design
      ING

      Quick Facts

      Full project name

      VIVA

      Duration

      5/1/2019 - 4/30/2022

      Financing

      VINNOVA within the FFI (Strategic Vehicle Research and Innovation) sub-program Sustainable Production and participating organisations.

      Partners

      Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science (IMS), Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre (FCC), University of Skövde, School of Engineering Science, CEVT, NEVS, Scania CV, Volvo Cars.

      The objective of the VIVA (the Virtual Vehicle Assembler) project VINNOVA Dnr 2018-05026) is to perform research and development actions to provide Swedish vehicle industry with an efficient and usable ergonomics simulation (digital human modelling) tool. The tool will support engineers to, already at early stages of design and development processes, make more precise decisions about operators' ergonomics conditions in future workstations.

      The project proposal addresses four main research and development challenges:

      • simple and efficient muscle modelling
      • human-robot collaboration verification considering safety, ergonomics and productivity
      • body shapes and appearance of human models that represent actual human diversity'
      • manipulation of manikins, and visualisation of simulation and assessment results

      The demonstrator software developed within the project will be based on the Swedish IPS IMMA DHM tool platform.
