The Application of Anthropometry to Automotive Design 700553

Anthropometry, the Measure of Man, is an old and well established branch of Anthropology. The present report deals with the identification and application of the pertinent dimension of the driving population and the use of these data in the design of the driver's workspace. The statistical nature of the information is emphasized.
