Honda R&D Invests in BRG Software and Services

Honda R&D Asaka Japan, will utilize BRG.LifeMOD human simulation in the design of motorcycles.

SAN CLEMENTE, CA – April, 2005 — Biomechanics Research Group Inc. (BRG), the leading global provider of biomechanics simulation tools and services, today announced that Honda R&D in Asaka Japan has made a substantial commitment in software and services from BRG. BRG.LifeMOD™ is the world’s leading human simulation product used in orthopedic, medical, sports and consumer product related industries.

“In the extremely competitive market of motorcycle production, the virtual prototype development process has been long embraced. With BRG.LifeMOD the virtual prototype process may now include a human rider in the loop to influence virtual vehicle handling and reveal information on human vibration exposure,” said Shawn McGuan, chairman and CEO of BRG. “This investment is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the BRG team to make BRG.LifeMOD far and away the best human simulation product on the market.”

Among the many new capabilities found in BRG.LifeMOD for this particular application is enhanced functionality for human-environment contact, muscle driven motion, LifeMOD interface to Matlab (Mathworks, Inc.) for central nervous system control and completely scalable human models. In addition, BRG.LifeMOD may now be seamlessly integrated with many MSCsoftware products such as ADAMS/Car and ADAMS/Motorcycle for complete human-in-the-loop simulation.

Since its introduction, BRG.LifeMOD quickly became the de facto standard teaching and research tool in many universities throughout the world as well as an essential design tool integrated in CAD environments in many leading commercial institutions.
