Oregon State University Includes Santos in Graduate Digital Human Modeling Course
By: SantosHuman Inc.
"My goal is to integrate Santos into our existing digital prototyping framework and generate preliminary analyses, which will be used as part of our National Science Foundation and Office of Naval Research proposal submissions in 2020," said Onan Demirel, Assistant Professor in the School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering.
"Having been part of the first DHM course ever offered at OSU in 2018, we are excited this academic partnership continues to grow," said Steve Beck, President & CEO of SantosHuman Inc. "We can't wait to see what OSU's leading academic mechanical engineering design research lab will do with Santos technologies."
For the courses, Demirel plans to develop undergraduate and graduate curriculum that focuses on DHM as well as computational prototyping, which can bring human factors engineering capabilities early in design.
"Course objectives will target modern product design methodologies with the human-in-the-

"Santos will provide a platform for analysis of human-product interactions. With Santos in the DTB facility, we will be able to thoroughly explore human-product interactions through DHM as well as motion capture, human-subject data collection, occupational health, ergonomics, human factors, and so on."
Santos software technologies have been provided to Oregon State University since 2017 as part of the Santos University Program, which includes several academic research partnerships. Those partnerships in Europe and North and South America include Nipissing University, University of Michigan-Dearborn, University of California-Berkeley, Oregon State University, Politecnico di Milano, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, the University of Waterloo and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
