McHenry a speaker at 2011 ARC-CSI conference

Post by brian » Tue Apr 05, 2011 4:39 pm

April 2011: I will be a speaker at the 2011 ARC-CSI conference in Las Vegas, may 23-26, 2011.
Come say Hi!
Brian
Topic is as follows:
Brian McHenry, McHenry Software, Inc
A Short History of Nearly Everything (…about computers in Highway Safety)
  • In the 2005 book A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson entertains and enlightens while taking readers on a journey from the Big Bang to the present day with all things scientific in between. If you haven’t read this book, do so, you will certainly learn while enjoying the read!

    In the same spirit of things, Brian McHenry will take you from the Big Bang of the 60’s digital computer revolution to the present with all things computer with respect to highway safety in between.
    In the early 60’s, Consumer Reports found that US seat belts didn’t pass the European Standards. Why? Learn how and why Brian’s father Raymond R. McHenry and his team at Calspan (then known as Cornell Aeronautical laboratory) created the first occupant simulation model to assist in the investigation and understanding of the differences between US and European belt standards. Then as the digital revolution progressed and with the passage of the Highway Safety Act, you’ll learn how McHenry was the mind behind many more computer models to help investigate errant vehicles on the highway, vehicle collisions and vehicle safety; Crash Victim Simulator (CVS), Highway vehicle Object Simulation Model (HVOSM), Simulation Model of Automobile Collisions (SMAC), Computerized Reconstruction of Accident Speeds on the Highway (CRASH). Since the late seventies, Ray and Brian have worked and researched together (and continue to do so) refining and enhancing computer models to push forward the state-of-the art of highway safety.

    This presentation will take you on the technical journey of the McHenrys from mainframe systems of the 60’s through the mini and microcomputer revolutions to the present day real time live interactive 3D systems, demonstrating how advances in digital computers, communications and storage technology have revolutionized our understanding of the complexities of occupant, vehicle and highway safety.

Nov 2011: Be sure to grab a copy of Collision magazine Volume 6, Issue 2 - Fall 2011
I have written a follow-up paper to my 2011 ARC-CSI presentation:
A Short History of Nearly Everything! (...about McHenry and Computers in Highway Safety)
  • In his 2005 book A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes readers on a spirited journey from the Big Bang to the present day with all things scientific in between. The size of the universe, the creation of the earth, Teutonic plates, tornados, cosmology, astronomy, paleontology, geology, physics, the garden club?, it’s all in the book. You will also find some very interesting stories about the many people involved in scientific discovery throughout the ages. I highly recommend the book as you will certainly enjoy the read!
    In the same spirit of things, this article will take you from the Big Bang of the 60’s digital computer revolution to the present time with all things related to McHenry in highway safety. I will focus in particular on some of the pioneering accomplishments in the field of computer applications to highway safety by my father, Raymond R McHenry in his first 25+ years in the field. I’ll also present some of the things he and I have accomplished working together for the past 30+ years as well as what we are planning for the future.
