What is the Biomotion Car
Biomotion Car Driver for SIMPACK is a unique solution to analyze the driver-steering interaction in a MBS-simulation.By the use of a human driver model as "actuator" for the steering wheel in your MBS simulation with SIMPACK you can analyze the mechanical interaction between the driver an the car.

What are the benefits?
Biomotion Car Driver can be used to simulate many typical maneuvers. It steers the car exactly the way a real driver does. This gives the opportunity that the coupling beetween rider and vehicle is modeled precisely. Consequently, any important resonance effect which may lead to instable driving is considered by your model.
Power steering parameters or driving assistence systems can be tested in a virtual engineering environment under different limit conditions. Dangerous testing can be minimized to lower cost and risks. For instance a driver "fighting" with an assistance system which interferes by active steering wheel motion can be analyzed.
What do you need to use
Biomotion Car Driver?
SIMPACK (version 9.6 or higher) with the license options Biomotion Elements and Biomotion Car Driver.
A human body model which uses the Biomotion Element 283 as joint actuators for shoulders and elbows. (Model can be requested by Biomotion Solutions or generated with Biomotion Workbench/Varibody.)
