Human Surrogacy

Our complete family of biofidelic ATDs represent humans of all sizes, ages and genders. They enable engineers to protect humans based on how they mimic the body in critical collisions.

Sensor Intelligence

Sensor Intelligence

We empower engineers with intelligence from sensors and fiber optics that track infinitesimal fluctuations in multi-directional acceleration, torque and pressure.

Simulation Models

Virtual Models

Our FE software enables engineers to virtually develop, test and predict the performance of new safety systems thus reducing the cost and effort of physical testing.

Active Safety

Active Safety

Our robotic safety testing equipment, software tools and test facilities are critical to evaluate and improve the accident-avoidance capabilities of advanced driver-assistance systems and autonomous vehicles.

"May you live in interesting times"

President and CEO, Chris O'Connor, shares his thoughts on the world we are operating in, his outlook for the future, and how the Humanetics Group is rising to the challenge.

What's Happening


ACM and Humanetics to Collaborate on ADAS and ADS Solutions

American Center for Mobility has signed a MOU with Humanetics to offer solutions for testing Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) and Automated Driving Systems (ADS).

Investigate TV

Investigate TV: Collision Division

Federal crash test standards favor men, despite women being at higher risk for injury and death when behind the wheel. Investigate TV’s White House correspondent Jon Decker takes a hard look at the aging and outdated crash test regulations and safety ratings that may have misleading implications for the female population of drivers in the U.S.
