Occupant Position Sensing Systems: Functional Requirements and Technical Means 932915
In this paper we discuss possible applications and design considerations for an Occupant Position Sensing System (OPSS). First, the minimum functional requirements and possible advanced applications for an OPSS are presented. The relation of an OPSS to current and future deployment decision systems is discussed. We then consider the implications of the functional requirements for the choice of technology. Finally, we describe a prototype occupant position sensor, and display its position and motion tracking capability.
