Welcome to the web site of the Global Human Body Models Consortium. GHBMC is a consortium of seven automakers and one supplier to consolidate their individual research and development activities in human body modeling into a single global effort to advance crash safety technology.
Fiat Chrysler Automotive U.S. LLC, General Motors Corp., Honda R&D Co., Hyundai Motor Co., Nissan Motor Corp. Ltd., PSA Peugeot-Citro�n, Renault s.a.s., and Takata Corp. are all members of the Global Human Body Models Consortium , which created a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in April 2006 following three years of organizing and planning.
