Naming Rules of the MME TaskForce

Post by derpmann » Tue Mar 12, 2013 2:43 pm

Especially for new dummy channels the MME TaskForce uses the following naming rules:
  • The naming of the channels should describe the structure of the dummy as a measurement device.
  • The MainLocation should describe the position of the sensor.
  • The FineLocation1 should describe the most significant spatial orientation of the channel.
  • The FineLocation2 should describe the less significant characteristic of the channel location or property
  • The FineLocation3 is identical to the dummy code.
This results for instance in:
Left/Right information in FL1 for side crash dummies
Left/Right information in FL1 for legs
Upper/Lower information in FL1 for necks

For historical reasons some aberrations from this rules are possible (see coding of the S2 rib displacement).

At the MME TaskForce meeting in Moenchengladbach the following rules were decided:

General rules:
  • The MainLocation should describe the position of the measurement point.
  • ChannelCodes which deviate from the following rules but are in use for a long time should not be changed.

Especially for new dummy and impactor channels the MME TaskForce uses the following naming rules:
  • The naming of the channels should describe the structure of the dummy as a measurement device.
  • The FineLocation1 should describe the most significant spatial orientation of the channel.
  • The FineLocation2 should describe the less significant characteristic of the channel location or property.
  • The FineLocation3 is identical to the dummy or impactor code.

In addition for all other channels where the FineLocation3 is not reserved for the dummy code the following rules will be applied:
  • The FineLocation 1,2,3 should be used in the order X,Y,Z in the coordinate system of the testobject, if all three spatial directions are used.
  • If one or two spatial directions are unused the other move up, resulting in 00 values at the FineLocations 3 and possibly 2.
