LiteCar is a plug-in for LiteBox3D and included with the Lite3D portfolio. LiteCar release 1.1.0 is the first public release and includes the Pedestrian Protection feature. Further functionality is added continuously using the knowledge from our CAVA application.
The direct safety of passengers and pedestrians plays an increasingly major role in the development of new vehicles. It is important for the designer to identify as early as possible, those areas which have to be checked by means of crash tests. With regard to the protection of pedestrians, these include the bonnet and the windscreen of the vehicle in case of head impact.
The size and position on these areas depend on the vehicle parameters but also on the vehicle geometry in particular.
