Methods for Determining Driver Reach Capability
ISSN: 0148-7191, e-ISSN: 2688-3627
Published February 01, 1969 by SAE International in United States
Annotation ability available
A method of determining the reach envelope, termed “ergosphere,” of vehicle operators is presented together with an example of the measured ergosphere of a general automotive package geometry. Application of this method in determining percentile of reach is described.
