The Eighth International Meeting for Manikins and Modeling (8I3M) was deemed a great success by all the conference attendees.
The August 22-26 event, in Victoria, BC, Canada, enjoyed the happy combination of outstanding weather, first-class facilities, highly relevant presentations, lively discussions, and great food. Plus, Victoria is an outstanding city for tourism, and there was no shortage of things to do with our free time.
In putting the 8I3M conference together, Measurement Technology NW received welcome support from the Sport Innovation (SPIN) Centre, the Pacific Institute of Sport Excellence (PISE), ThermoAnalytics, Inc, and W.L. Gore. Our thanks go out to all these organizations, and to the 60+ people who attended from around the world. MTNW engineers presented the following research papers:
- DEVELOPMENT OF A ROBOTIC THERMAL MANNEQUIN FOR EVALUATION OF INDIVIDUAL PROTECTIVE ENSEMBLES
- APPLICATION OF MODEL-CONTROLLED MANIKIN TO PREDICT HUMAN PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSE IN FIREFIGHTER TURNOUT GEAR
- FURTHER VALIDATION OF THE MODEL-CONTROLLED NEWTON THERMAL MANIKIN AGAINST HISTORICAL HUMAN STUDIES
If you were not able to attend, you missed out receiving the 8I3M conference proceedings on a one-of-a-kind “robot” USB drive. How appropriate for a manikin conference!
