Contributing to research on safety technologies with THUMS
We’ve made our models commercially available and are happy that THUMS contributes to research on safety technologies not just at Toyota, but also at organizations all over the world. The THUMS model is now being used in safety research by other major car makers, such as Audi, Volvo, Renault and Daimler, and components and parts suppliers. It has also been put to good use to help design safer racing cars, including the famous FIA Formula One.
Even the USA’s space exploration agency, NASA, has used it in the design process for Orion, a spacecraft that could lead the way for taking man to Mars…and shall the humanity move to Mars, we would like to take children with, wouldn’t we?
