The large luxury sedan seat has a 22-way Movement. It offers a wide range of adjustments to enhance passenger comfort performance while it has many constraints on movement in constrained indoor space. In addition, the power seat is operated by a motor, which makes it difficult for the user to determine the amount of adjustment, unlike determining the amount of adjustment by the power and feel of a person, such as manual seat adjustment. IMS, one-touch mode, is also constrained by parameters such as indoor space package, user's lifestyle, etc. during function playback. This paper aims to design the seat control logic to achieve the best seat comfort while satisfying each constraint.
The results of this study are as follows.
- Increase robustness of power seat control logic.
- Provide optimal adjustments and comfort at each location.
- Offer differentiated custom control and seating modes for each seat.
- Improve customer satisfaction and quality by upgrading software.
