Driver Selected Seat Position Model
ISSN: 0148-7191, e-ISSN: 2688-3627
Published February 01, 1984 by SAE International in United States
Annotation ability available
Data from fourteen driver workspace studies have been used to develop a two dimensional model which defines driver selected horizontal seat position as a function of chair height for various percentile accomodation levels. The tool is referenced to a manikin ball of foot point and can be used for design and/or checking purposes.
