Real-Life Data for development

What if? How would an accident have turned out if the conditions had been different For example, would the injuries to vehicle occupants be less? The consequences less drastic? Could a certain driver assistance system have reduced the consequences of the accident or even avoided the crash? What requirements would this assistance system have to […]

Safe accident investigations when high-voltage vehicles are involved

Fortunately, the number of electric vehicles is steadily rising. At ASTech we are deeply involved in dealing with these new drive train concepts in cases of potential damage. In collaboration with AUDI AG and WAW GmbH, we developed a process for working with high-voltage models, which contains detailed protocols and workflows that guarantee a precise […]

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 […]
