The design engineer can show the vehicle operator and passengers the same concern for efficiency and safety that has been incorporated into the industrial work place. Comfort and safety measures, however, do not yield immediate, tangible advantages; they represent costs assumed for the benefit of the people involved.Certain anatomical characteristics relating to driving comfort have already been well documented. Spatial configuration begins with these characteristics; in particular, the more slowly that a driver tires, the more unlikely is an accident. Subsequently, security measures must also be included.Yearlong development of transports by Volkswagen have aimed at both these goals. One such model was collision-tested according to personal vehicle standards and the results form a basis of this paper. Safety features concentrate on energy-absorption elements such as telescoping components and reinforced areas.
