Sensory Intelligence for Life

Our complete family of biofidelic ATDs represent humans of all sizes, ages and genders. They enable engineers to protect humans based on how they mimic the body in critical collisions.

We empower engineers with intelligence from sensors and fiber optics that track infinitesimal fluctuations in multi-directional acceleration, torque and pressure.

Our FE software enables engineers to virtually develop, test and predict the performance of new safety systems thus reducing the cost and effort of physical testing.

Our robotic safety testing equipment, software tools and test facilities are critical to evaluate and improve the accident-avoidance capabilities of advanced driver-assistance systems and autonomous vehicles.

"May you live in interesting times"

President and CEO, Chris O'Connor, shares his thoughts on the world we are operating in, his outlook for the future, and how the Humanetics Group is rising to the challenge.

What's Happening

Every time one of our dummies is sent to space, we know that her journey is paving the way for safe human exploration of the final frontier.

Despite the work done in the industry, women, elderly and overweight people are at significantly more risk of injury than adult men of average age and size. There is a lot more work to do.

In recent years there has been a lot of focus on active safety features to help reduce accidents before they happen. Our latest innovations help manufacturers put these features to the test.
