Anthropometrically Designed Smart Seat 2009-01-1165
Seating comfortability is an important concern for the automobile industry. To achieve advanced comfort in automobiles we have designed a seat that would automatically provide instantaneous comfort to the occupant in real time. We use pressure sensors to sense seat pressure data; i.e., a signature. The data obtained is analyzed and used to provide corrective action. Instantaneous adjustment of the seat for the new body structure or changed position of the occupant is done in a matter of seconds. ANN automated system also trains the seat to learn as it is used and saves the data for the new body type; this further helps in reducing response time for the system. This effort would help in the creation of a comfortable and psychologically tension free environment for a future generation of passengers.
