TED - Thermal Evaluation Dummy

An American motorcycle manufacturer was looking for a manikin to measure convective/radiated engine heat in order to evaluate rider comfort at various leg positions and motorcycle speeds.

Because only legs were needed to conduct the desired tests, Thermetrics developed a custom manikin form with special hip joints that allowed the manikin to be positioned on a wide variety of motorcycles, while battery power and wireless data transmission kept cabling needs to a minimum.

Data communication to and from the manikin is provided by a wireless RS-232 link attached to a Windows based PC running Thermetrics' ThermDAC software - a Windows based program that provides control capabilities, data recording, and real-time numerical and graphical displays of section temperatures.
