Humanetics Innovative Solutions and Aicon 3D Systems Distribution Agreement

Humanetics Innovative Solutions, Inc., the global leader in the development of biofidelic crash test dummies and custom sensor solutions, has announced it has signed a commercial agreement with AICON 3D Systems GmbH, a leading provider of optical camera-based 3D measuring systems acquired by Hexagon AB in 2016. Under the agreement, Humanetics becomes the exclusive provider of AICON’s Dummy Positioning System (DPS) and pre- and post-crash measurement system (ProCam Crash) to the global marketplace. The combination of Humanetics and the AICON systems allow Humanetics to provide customers a broader range of vehicle safety testing systems.

Using the DPS, crash test dummies can be positioned for complete vehicle crashes, sled testing and calibration with minimum preparation time, leading to cost savings for the customer. Its advantages include speed and accuracy, since all the points marked on the crash test dummy (head, H-point, knees) are simultaneously captured and deviations from the target position are displayed in real-time. The hand-held ProCam system is used for the pre- and post-crash measurement of crash vehicles to detect interior and exterior deformations. The seamless combination of the ProCam and DPS significantly improves the efficiency of the pre-crash preparation and post-crash measurement processes.

The Dummy Positioning System is a critical tool that dramatically reduces pre-crash set-up time, while offering robust and repeatable results. The ProCam system offers customer a highly flexible alternative to a conventional CMM or articulated arm for pre- and post-crash measurements.

“The AICON safety products are natural additions to our portfolio of advanced safety products and add significant value for our customers,” said Christopher J. O’Connor, CEO of Humanetics. “The Dummy Positioning System is a critical tool that dramatically reduces pre-crash set-up time, while offering robust and repeatable results. The ProCam system offers customer a highly flexible alternative to a conventional CMM or articulated arm for pre- and post-crash measurements.”

Werner Boseman, CEO of AICON added, “As the leading manufacturer of crash test dummies, Humanetics is the perfect partner to promote these two systems. While AICON will continue to provide its core 3D camera technology for both products, Humanetics has the scale, global network, and sector experience to make these two products market leaders in the vehicle safety testing sector.”
