This paper reports results of a driver eye position survey made to provide the automobile industry with standardized data on driver eye location. Coordinate anthropometric measurements of eye position and top of head were recorded on film by a special photogrammetric technique. Data were smoothed into elliptical tangent cutoff percentile contours referenced to car body inch-lines and to points on the manikin. Results revealed a new shape to the driver’s eye position zone, compared to the area outlined in SAE J906, Glazing Manual.
