Toyota is Offering Life-Saving Technology for Free
When you hear that a company as big as Toyota is giving away something for free, it’s normal to assume that it’s something nobody wants.
Granted, in this case Toyota isn’t giving away something that everybody wants, but it is offering up technology that’s very important to engineers who work on improving how vehicles protect passengers in accidents.
In this case, that technology is called the Total Human Model for Safety, or THUMS for short. Think of it as a digital crash test dummy, one that includes almost all the bones, organs, tissues and tendons found in the human body. This makes it one of the most advanced systems available to simulate and analyze injuries caused in motor vehicle collisions.
It’s the culmination of more than twenty years work by Toyota, and as of January 2021, it’s free to anyone who wants to use it.
