Honda Automobiles: Honda Leads Industry-First Development of Visualization Technology to Advance Study of Crash Test Simulations

Posted on 26. Jun, 2014 by in Honda Canada

In a consistent office of conceptualizing and building safer vehicles for all highway users, Honda is pioneering a use of a groundbreaking new three-dimensional, crash-simulation cognisance record formed on DELTAGEN, a heading high-end 3D cognisance program by 3DXCITE (formerly famous as RTT).

The record takes a outlay from a commonly-used modernized make-believe program package, famous as LS DYNA CAE, and renders a eventuality in a three-dimensional presentation. The cognisance technology, that was initial designed for use in a animation and film industry, enables Honda engineers to some-more simply investigate a formula of a pile-up simulation, exam opposite pattern approaches and exercise pattern changes with larger speed and efficiency. 

Honda engineers are means to manipulate a rendering, stagger a perspective in any instruction and frame divided tools of a car to besiege a territory or member for some-more consummate analysis. The pile-up separator can also be rendered pure in a practical sourroundings so a evident effects of a pile-up can be noticed from mixed points of view, including a driver’s seat.

The cognisance program was co-developed by Honda RD Americas, Inc., a North American investigate and growth arm of Honda, and 3DXCITE.

“With this technology, we have gained a intensity to urge a peculiarity of preference creation and revoke a time compulsory for finalizing a car pattern by severely augmenting a palliate of communicating and bargain a formula of a pile-up exam simulation,” pronounced Eric DeHoff, Technical Leader for CAE in a Crash Safety Group of Honda RD Americas, Inc. “This apparatus will foster a some-more finish bargain of car reserve pattern among all engineers concerned in a car growth process.”

Honda engineers challenged developers during 3DXCITE to confederate a DELTAGEN program with Honda’s existent LS-DYNA CAE pile-up make-believe information to broach a minute 3D digest of a simulation. Honda engineers supposing minute parameters of a apparatus and oversaw a development. 

“This record would not have turn a existence but a prophesy and care of Honda engineers,” pronounced Tom Celusnak, Solutions Architect for 3DXCITE.

“Past efforts during formulating this kind of rarely picturesque digest concerned weeks of strong bid by engineers and digest specialists and would outcome a singular make-believe with bound observation parameters,” combined DeHoff.  “With this new record we can emanate and manipulate a make-believe during a pull of a button, and we can do it in hours instead of weeks.”

Honda RD has been utilizing LS-DYNA non-linear pile-up make-believe record given 1998 as partial of a new-model growth routine and has used a record to assistance rise new reserve designs, including a next-generation Advance Compatibility Engineering (ACE) physique structure, now being practical to each new Honda and Acura vehicle, and a innovative one-piece hot-stamped doorway stiffener ring initial practical to a HRA-developed 2014 Acura MDX.  Today, as a result, Honda has some-more vehicles achieving an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating than any other automaker, including a Honda Accord sedan and coupe, a Civic sedan, Odyssey minivan, Acura RLX sedan and Acura MDX sport-utility vehicle.

About Honda’s Commitment to Safety
Honda has a prolonged story of care in a growth and focus of modernized technologies designed to raise a reserve of all highway users, including vehicle occupants, motorcycle riders and pedestrians.  American Honda leads a attention in third-party pile-up exam ratings, with some-more Honda and Acura vehicle achieving tip reserve ratings from a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) than any other automaker.  The association is also broadly requesting modernized driver-assistive technologies, such as Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning, to a product lineup.  Also, American Honda has practical rearview cameras as customary apparatus to all of a light lorry models and 95 percent of a newcomer cars for indication year 2014, and will grasp 100-percent focus by 2015.

3DXCITE software, solutions, and CGI services yield high-end 3D visualizations in real-time for high-impact storytelling opposite all media channels. Leveraging your source data, 3DXCITE opens adult artistic leisure to broach romantic resources for digital, interactive selling and sales experiences. From consulting to workflow to final cognisance assets, 3DXCITE transforms engineering information into absolute visible practice that we call engineered excitement.
