New Anthropometry of Human Body Models for Riding Comfort Simulation 2007-01-2457
New human body models have been developed with recent anthropometry for riding comfort simulation. External geometry of the models was acquired from the three dimensional whole body laser scanning of recruited volunteers in a driving position. The selection criteria for volunteers with standard size and shape were derived from a statistical factor analysis of the SizeUSA database. As a practical application of the model in a design process, comfortable driving postures were constructed by using the Cascade Prediction Model (CPM) which takes into account both interior package layout and the driver's anthropometry.
