A computer program was written to take the crash dynamics sequence obtained from a computer-simulation model, and “draw” the corresponding animated manikin on the computer cathode-ray tube. The series of momentary solutions is repeatedly photographed on 16 mm film and then projected at movie speed. The result is a “slow-motion” animation showing the motions of the simulated victim during the crash sequence.
