The Study of a Cockpit with a Fixed Steering Wheel Position: Methods and Model 2003-01-2180
An ergonomics study was conducted in a mock-up with a fixed steering wheel position. Drivers adjusted the seat and pedals to a comfortable position. A three-dimensional coordinate measurement machine (CMM) was used to measure the comfortable position of 21 participants. Proven test methods were used to collect the posture data. A model is described to assist in seat and pedal placement for cockpit design.
