40 years of SAMMIE
SAMMIE was initially developed at Nottingham University by two PhD students starting in 1968.
SAMMIE has been based at Loughborough University since the 1980s, becoming a limited company (SAMMIE CAD Ltd) in 1985.
In 1994 Professor Maurice Bonney, Professor Keith Case and Professor Mark Porter, received the Otto
Edholm Award from the Ergonomics Society in recognition of their significant contribution to the development and
application of ergonomics.
SAMMIE has been used in hundreds of projects, here are a selection of images from some of them.
Version 8.5 is the latest update to the SAMMIE system.
v8.5 brings significant additional functionality and interface changes to Volumetric and Spherical projection capabilities. Projections can now be done in 2D, 3D, clipped and tesselated, combined to provide
common or exclusive areas and for spherical projections the area can be reported in m2.
