The Global Human Body Models Consortium (GHBMC) was created in April 2006 with the objective to consolidate world-wide research and development activities in human body modeling into a single global effort to advance crash safety technology. The mission of the GHBMC is to develop and maintain high fidelity Finite Element human body models for automotive crash simulations.
Members of the GHBMC currently include; General Motors Corp., FCA US LLC, Honda R&D Co., Hyundai Motor Co., Nissan Motor Corp. Ltd., PSA Peugeot-Citroën, Renault s.a.s., and Joyson Safety Systems. Ford Motor Co., NHTSA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) and Autoliv Inc. are Participants contributing to the technical development. The GHBMC has developed a family of virtual humans including male and female seated occupants of various sizes and pedestrians including a six year old child. The models and CAD developed by the GHBMC are available for licensing and a free academic license is available for qualified academic institutions.
Founded in 2006, GHBMC is an international consortium of automakers & suppliers working with research institutes and government agencies to advance human body modeling technologies for crash simulations.
In order to share work load and leverage a vast base of academia expertise in impact biomechanics and human body modeling, model development work has been undertaken by multiple Universities world-wide as well as partnering with software developers and other consortia around the globe.
Members of the GHBMC currently include; FCA US LLC, General Motors Holdings LLC, Honda R&D Co., Hyundai Motor Co., Nissan Motor Corp. Ltd., PSA Groupe, Renault s.a.s., and Joyson Safety Systems, Ford Motor Co., PDB (Partnership for Dummy Technology is Participant contributing to the technical development.
GHBMC Officers are nominated and elected by the Steering Committee annually.
