The effect of pillar size on vision obscuration in the forward field of view is discussed.
The SAE J941a Eyellipse has become an accepted design tool and is one of the first of its kind to be used in automotive driver work space design. A review of this recommended practice will include a brief reminder of its value and also of its limitations. An expansion of the tools limitations covering a driver head turned consideration is included. A review of a study in process for developing an Eyellipse for use in truck packaging is also included.
