On September 27th, 2016 the MADYMO Users Meeting took place at the campus of the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) in Ann Arbor, MI, United States of America.
The meeting has been successfully organised by the American office of TASS International and by courtesy of Dr.Jingwen Hu (UMTRI) for hosting the meeting at the premises of UMTRI. The users meeting was attended by nearly 50 professionals from companies like Nissan, Hyundai, ESI, Guidance Engineering and many more. Tony Gioutsos, Director Sales & Marketing of TASS Americas, opened the users meeting with his introduction speech, followed by company and product presentations of the two sponsors of the event: ESTECO and Altair.
Dr.Jingwen Hu accommodated several tours at the campus of UMTRI to demonstrate various facilities such as a sled, simulator and body scanner. During the users meeting 12 speakers presented their topics ranging from rear seat crashes, off-road vehicles accidents to wheelchair crash simulations and various accident reconstruction use cases. Furthermore, Dr.Martin Tyssens of TASS International HQ presented various most recent updates of the complete MADYMO software package and his outlook for future developments and expected trends. The closing presentation by Tony Gioutsos was also very well received by the audience where potential injury reduction capabilities by integrating passive and active safety systems were presented and the challenges that arise when finding the right balance between active and passive systems to maximize real-world safety performance.
