Using Anthropometric Modeling for Optimal Ergonomic Considerations in Automobile Interior Design 2005-01-2718

Computer Aided Ergonomic Design Systems (CAEDS) currently lack the ability of generating human models based on a user-entered database. Additionally, recent studies have not focused on the ability to reverse engineer the anthropometric dimensions that can be suited for a final design. This paper presents a toolbox based on developed methodologies that use human models to specify the interior dimensions of a passenger car. It also allows a designer to create these human models using a database of their choice. The designer can also reverse engineer a population based on the final design, and test any population to find its accommodation range. There are three modules in the toolbox - Human Model Generation, Occupant Driver Packaging, and Reverse Engineering.
