Motor Vehicle Seat Comfort Performance Measures
These test procedures apply to complete seat systems (production seats or prototypes built at the intended manufacturing quality); however, the procedures can be modified for subsystem or component level testing.
This document provides technology, terminology, and procedural updates to performance measurements related to occupant support, penetration into the seat, and mechanical aspects of comfort in the seat. These measurements are used in the automotive seating industry and were initially described in the SAE Seating Manual (SAE J782). Measurements in this document supersede any similar measurements given in SAE J782.
