Humanetics and Ansys announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire a minority ownership interest in Humanetics from Bridgepoint, the global private equity firm that first invested in Humanetics in 2018. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and receipt of required regulatory approvals.

Humanetics is a leading provider of physical and digital human safety systems and sensor technologies. Building on an existing partnership, the two companies will together strengthen the human safety engineering ecosystem and help propel the industry forward by marrying physical and virtual safety solutions with digital twins.

Humanetics is the world’s leading provider of anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs), more commonly known as crash test dummies. The company also provides digital models of their ATDs, which are commonly used by simulation software companies, including Ansys, to create realistic simulations of crash events. Humanetics’ digital models of ATDs are highly complementary to, and frequently used with Ansys’ LS-DYNA crash test solution.

Humanetics also offers an innovative ergonomics software solution, RAMSIS, which allows users to create virtual vehicle interiors, custom Human Body Models (HBMs), and 3D occupants to evaluate ergonomics and comfort during prototype development. Combining Humanetics’ HBMs and RAMSIS with Ansys’ physics-based simulation portfolio through the expanded partnership will further empower human-centric product design, improve testing, and better inform decision making.

“Humanetics’ mission is to protect humans in mission critical environments, by providing engineers with data that is used to drive innovation and improve control. Combining our safety and sensor expertise with Ansys’ simulation capabilities is an opportunity to add value to our customers and save more lives,” said Christopher O’Connor, Humanetics CEO and President. “This partnership with Ansys will jointly enable us to further unleash new levels of innovation in the human safety ecosystem. We remain committed to working with all our existing and future partners to drive innovation in the industry.”

“Ansys and Humanetics’ existing offerings are highly complementary and enable an end-to-end solution for active and passive auto safety test and design,” Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “Deepening our partnership with Humanetics will not only enable further integration of physical test data with digital simulation data for our customers, but also has the potential to enable interconnected digital and physical offerings that will transform the human safety ecosystem.”
