AMNESIA – our anonymization software

AMNESIA (automated methods for numerical, easy, secure and irreversible anonymization) is an in-house developed software based on a multistage algorithm for detecting and anonymizing faces and license plate numbers found on photos (pixilated). Automatically-generated suggestions can also be edited. AMNESIA was created as part of a master’s thesis by the accident research/interior concepts team under […]

Brain injury score (BIS)

Our colleague Debasis reconstructed 70 well-documented head injuries of different origins using an existing finite element head model with the help of Visual Performance Solution (VPS), which is used to precisely predict the corresponding head injuries. He then compares these values with the results of established injury prediction criteria (head injury criteria [HIC] and brain […]
