Customer evaluations are critical to the development of vehicles that people will love to drive. But traditional engineering efforts and workflows often conflict with customer evaluations. This happens because there has never been a way to assess customer/vehicle interactions until just prior to production, when change is no longer a realistic option. Unfortunately, this means you can only hope the customer evaluations can be used in the next design iteration.
But what if vehicle design workflows could include virtual customer evaluations that anticipate feedback not only prior to production but at the earliest stages of design? What if a realistic virtual customer in an advanced human simulation software tool could guide your design team on improvements easily and realistically at a point in the design process where change is not only most effective, but still an option?
The good news is that we no longer have to ask these questions. Years of research and development have resulted in human simulation capabilities that make truly customer-centric design processes possible, all while considering vehicle operator task goals, strength, flexibility, visual capabilities and more.
Santos technologies provide virtual human-in-the-loop solutions that adapt to change. We make it possible to predict what works and what doesn’t for customer-centric vehicle design. SantosHuman leverages unique abilities to predict human physical behavior and performance. In turn, this results in software tools and services that allow product use evaluations to be integrated early in the vehicle development cycle.
We don’t have to wait until it’s too late to make needed changes.
Provide your teams with the ability to develop vehicle designs your customers will love at the earliest stages of design. Learn more about SantosHuman and the cutting-edge predictive human simulation software that puts your customers first in the design process.
