Location, Accessibility, and Identification of Controls and Displays in 1969 Passenger Automobiles 690458
A human engineering survey of the control/display arrangements in 1969 passenger automobiles was conducted under contract to the National Highway Safety Bureau. Survey rationale, methodology, and preliminary findings are presented. Marked variability was noted between various control/display arrangements and certain important driver compartment dimensions. This and other findings suggest need for development of human engineering design criteria against which to base future design standards for the driver-vehicle interface.
