A Case Study: Use of Human Models in the Evaluation of Driver Workspaces in Relation to Dutch Anthropometrics 1999-01-1886

The Dutch are the tallest measured people in the world. One third of the Dutch male drivers population is not properly considered in SAE standards. The potential ‘matching-problem’ between Dutch drivers and present-day's driver workspaces is being investigated by the VIMS project team.
A large amount of driver workspaces in passenger cars has been measured. The measurements have been converted to 3D CAD models to be able to evaluate them with RAMSIS.
RAMSIS proved to be a helpful tool to investigate the influence of package design on the driving posture of Dutch drivers and to determine areas in the package design that may not be suitable for tall drivers.
