This document describes the CAD model data of legs and back hardware available from SAE for the HPM-1 three-dimensional H-point machine. The elements of the CAD model include the feet, lower and thighs as well as headroom probe and t-bar. Also included are datum points and lines, and calibration references. The intended purpose for this information is to provide a CAD reference for design and benchmarking as well as a calibration reference for the physical HPM-1 audits. The content and format of the data files that are available are also described. The actual CAD model files are included with this product and are provided in the following formats: CATIA v4 (without parametrics), CATIA v5 (without parametrics), IGES, and STEP.
This SAE Information Report establishes a uniform procedure for assuring the manufactured quality, installed utility and performance of automotive hoists designed to load and unload an unoccupied Mobility Device into or upon a personally licensed vehicle.
This recommended practice provides technicians with safe and efficient techniques and general equipment recommendations for servicing Mobile Air Conditioning (MAC) systems in heavy duty and off-highway work machines. Presently, R-134a is the only approved refrigerant for use in mobile heavy duty and off-highway equipment and therefore this document primarily covers the servicing of R-134a systems. Since the technician may encounter other refrigerants a brief explanation on the identification safe handling of each refrigerant will be introduced.
The Habitability standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting Habitability activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers all aspects of the physical environment that people inhabit, for work, or other purpose. It includes adequate space and environmental/temperature controls and, if appropriate, requirements for personnel services (e.g., medical, dental and mess) and living conditions (e.g., berthing and personal hygiene) that have a direct impact on meeting or sustaining system performance/effectiveness or that have such an adverse impact on safety, health, comfort, quality of life and morale that recruitment or retention is degraded. It includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design, and verification of Habitability requirements and processes.
The Design for Maintainer (DFM) standard identifies the recommended approach for conducting Design for Maintainability activities in support of system acquisition programs. The standard identifies general requirements and processes of a successful DFM program during concept and design development to ensure the lowest possible ownership costs. This standard provides specific detailed contractor requirements for DFM activities inclusive of the Human Engineering domain. The standard is consistent with MIL-STD-46855 and SAE 6906 Human Systems Integration. And DFM standard practices support performance of activities in coordination with other associated disciplines such as maintainability, supportability, and integrated logistics.
The Protection and Survivability (FP&S) standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting FP&S activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers FP&S processes throughout system conceptualization, design, development, verification, production, use and disposal. FP&S includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design and verification of system-related survivability characteristics and processes designed to protect personnel from direct threats and accidents, including primary and secondary effects from the events.
The Personnel standard practice identifies the recommended approach for conducting Personnel activities in support of system acquisition programs. This standard covers Personnel processes throughout system conceptualization, design, development, verification, production, use and disposal. Personnel addresses skills, grades, aptitudes, physical attributes and education and training backgrounds of military and civilian personnel required to operate, maintain, train and support the system equipment and associated support equipment and facilities in its operational environment. It includes analysis, modeling and simulation, design support and verification of Personnel estimates and requirements.
J3078/4 specifies a uniform test method for measuring the contribution to operator environmental temperature provided by a heating, ventilating and air conditioning system operating in a specific ambient environment. The method might not determine the complete climatic environment of the operator since this is also affected by heat load from sources other than those on the machine, for example solar heating. J3708/6 is to be used in conjunction with J3078/4 to determine more accurately the complete heat loading on the operator enclosure. Minimum performance levels for the machine’s operator enclosure heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems are established in J3708/4.
This SAE Recommended Practice provides test protocols with performance requirements for Camera Monitor Systems to replace existing statutorily required inside and outside rear-view mirrors for US market road vehicles. This practice expands specific technical content while retaining harmonization with the FMVSS 111 Rear Visibility standard, and other international standards. This is accomplished by defining required roadway fields of view as specific fields of view (FOV) displayed inside the vehicle. Specific testing protocols and/or specifications are added to enhance ease of use using straightforward language and any specifications are intended to be independent of different camera and display technologies unless otherwise explicitly stated.
The Vehicle Sound for Pedestrians Subcommittee of the SAE Safety and Human Factors Committee is developing a test procedure to determine the sound output of electric and hybrid-electric powertrain vehicles at certain low-speed conditions. Establishing a consistent method of measuring the sound output of these vehicles will facilitate further study into the need for additional measures to alert pedestrians to the presence of these vehicles in traffic. This test procedure could also become industry practice should it later be deemed necessary to record the sound output of certain vehicles in low speed traffic conditions where vehicles, pedestrians and other road users are co-mingled.
