Anthropometric Characteristics of Automobile Drivers 700358

A recent survey is described in which a series of anthropometric measurements were taken which are related to automobile design. In the first phase of the research 1,000 seated subjects were used to obtain 22 static measurements, most of which were indexed to two different reference points, the SAE H point and the accelerator heel point. In the second phase of the research measurements of functional arm reach to 117 points within the seated workspace were obtained on 100 subjects. Examples of the static and dynamic data obtained are given in both tabular and graphic form. Discussions are included of the measurements taken, the reasons for their selection, the measuring techniques employed, the statistical analyses used, and the potential applications of the data.
