Safety, Durability, and Comfort Technologies for Suspension Seating in Heavy Truck 2000-01-3407

In the heavy truck market, suspension seating has evolved through research in the areas of comfort durability, and vibration exposure analysis. These areas are under constant investigation and development for the production of a suspension seat that will accommodate a larger range of occupants more comfortably, will possess increased durability, and will provide the drivers with more control of their driving environment.
Some comfort technologies under current investigation for the heavy truck market that will be discussed include electromyography (EMG), benchmarking, pressure mapping, and field evaluation. Current durability research includes field data acquisition, fatigue analysis, and accelerated simulation testing. Vibration exposure research aims to develop improved occupant isolation from vehicle and road vibration. The research conducted in these areas is leading toward improvements in the development and design of seating in the heavy truck market.
