    Occupant Model for Human Motion



    A two-dimensional model of a human being has been developed for display on a computer graphic terminal. The model was designed for use with the’SIMULA program which predicts the positions of an occupant within a vehicle cabin during a crash. However, the model can also be used in the simulation of other human motions, such as walking, etc.Also presented is the design of a simple device to automatically generate movies from a terminal screen. Triggered by the bell on the terminal, one frame is taken of each position of any time-varying event, thus creating a movie depicting simulated motion.
