Real-time and Remote Scientific Visualization as a Practical Aid for Improved Child Restraint System Analysis 2006-01-1650

The NYSCEDII CRS Visualization Module (NCVM) converts model geometric output to stereoscopic, three-dimensional imagery, and adds a quantitative and scientific component as well. Its scientific visualization capability enables the interactive integration of crash geometry and scientific data, thereby facilitating a greater ability to interpret, re-evaluate, and modify this data. The new functionalities in NCVM’s capabilities serve as the focus of this work, and include four major areas of discussion, namely: a) the incorporation of sled test video footage directly into the simulation for comparison and validation, b) contextual details of the simulated crash by utilizing a model vehicle with textured interiors, thereby facilitating interior cabin collision/interference studies, c) a description of post-processing shortcuts to improve the graphical performance of the visualization (while not compromising necessary detail), and, d) the incorporation of a real-time and remote visualization capability that potentially expands the NCVM from a post-processor to a geographically distributed design tool.
