The Anthropology of Anthropomorphic Dummies 690805

A program has been developed under the National Highway Safety Bureau, Department of Transportation, to create a set of standard body-forms for anthropomorphic dummies representative of the American public. Planned sizes include “adult” to “infant” for both sexes. Committee members from both government and industry review anthropometric survey data and choose suitable dimensions, as available, for human body size, for arm, leg, and torso mobility, and for segment masses and c.g. locations.
The resulting body-forms will become national standards of size, form, mobility and mass distribution, to which dummies for the American market will have to conform.
