Open access

VIRTUAL is particularly dedicated to an open access approach. It will be software code independent and provide a total solution for Virtual Testing (VT) ranging from models to specifications, protocols and user support.

VT with the help of HBMs facilitates assessing the accident outcome in situations where crash test dummies do not work or are not reliable. Using HBMs is currently a hurdle for new competitors to enter the market as the technological level is very high. VIRTUAL will reduce this hurdle by providing user friendly Open Access HBMs with appropriate level of detail that are run-time efficient.

The project will accommodate all relevant stakeholder types, from research to industry, regulatory bodies to consumer testing and independent software vendors to technical users. This project provides directly applicable VT solutions.
