PIPER software, child model, documentation

Here are links to the piper tool and model (Use 7zip to extract the 7z archives):

PS: We are working on scientific publication for the final results (please be kind to the authors not to rush to publish results obtained with the PIPER tools or models).

Other downloads on the gitlab

Besides the software and the child model, the Git repository also provides:

  • some anthropo models (to be used with scalable constraints)
  • a reference geometrical model (see also data below)
  • vehicle environments (including generic child restraint systems released by VFSB. Thank you)

Note on metadata

Many questions right now are related to the use of the software with commercial models (e.g. Thums, GHBMC). We are currently still discussing with the model owners on the best way to make available the metadata for these.

In the meantime, we cannot provide metadata examples for these models. The manual describes how to create metadata and you can use the files of the child model as an example.


The project also decided to release most data generated or formatted during the project. Please see the files for documentation (license, source, …). A list is provided below:

  • Other datasets
    • Lower Limb Bony Landmarks derived from the raw measurements of the data from Thomas M. Kepple, H.J. Sommer III, Karen Lohmann Siegel, Steven J. Stanhope. (1998) A three-dimensional musculoskeletal database for the lower extremities. Journal of Biomechanics 31 77—80. Formatted for PIPER.
