Abstract : A prototype manikin with internal data acquisition system (MIDAS) has been developed and received by the US Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory. In addition to a novel design of the spinal column and pelvis of the Hybrid III automotive manikin, the new MIDAS includes a built-in signal conditioning and acquisition electronics. This report documents the initial modifications to the manikin and includes a description of the external software (MIDAS 3.0) for control, communication, and posttest downloading and analysis of the data.
