ADAM Gets a New Home

ADAM (Advanced Automotive Manikin) was delivered to the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Lab in 2001, and it remains the most sophisticated thermal manikin ever built.

ADAM’s porous metal sweating skin construction, 120-zone high-res configuration, internal battery power, and wireless communication capabilities have yet to be duplicated. And therein lies a problem…

Over the years we’ve often thought about how ADAM is an only child and how good it would be to build him a brother. But, as fate would have it, no other customer has had the budget or needed the sensitivity and features that make ADAM unique.

So we have decided to move ADAM from the Full Body Manikin product pages to a new (and probably more fitting) home on the Custom Implementations page. ADAM product information and specifications are still available, just at a different place.

Now this doesn’t mean we can’t or won’t build another ADAM. Of course we would, if his capabilities were needed in another cutting-edge research simulation involving human metabolic response to non-uniform and transient environments. But until that day comes, we’ve decided that ADAM is one-of-a-kind…
