Thomas Built Buses Engineering and Freightliner LLC Engineering groups worked interactively to optimize driver and passenger ergonomics, comfort and safety. Several examples are shown to highlight the benefits of applying 3-D human modeling to the design process. Resulting improvements of visibility, accommodation, and safety are shown.
