The article the TNO Automotive Safety Solutions has launched the Mathematical Dynamic Modelling (MADYMO) /Exchange. This new software tool enables users to harness the power of some of the most effective crash test simulation software available. MADYMO software allows users to create virtual cars on a computer system. It can then be subjected to simulated crashes which eliminates the need for expensive and repeated physical crash testing of vehicles in a test facility.
