In the absence of Anthropometric and Ergonomic data on Indian Driving population, a project entitled “Ergonomic study on Indian driving population” was under taken by The Automotive Research Association of India, Pune with assistance of the Government of India and the Indian Automotive industries. The objective was to survey and compile anthrpometric data in standing, sitting and preferred driving position for 4-wheeler and 2-wheeler driving positions to assist the automobile manufacturers in India to cater their design to Indian population and make an Indian driver comfortable.
This paper briefly presents the methodology adopted for the survey along with the results. Also studies were conducted on finger pressure, hand pressure and foot pressure exerted by the driver, which would serve as the baseline data for designing controls for the vehicle.
A comparison with a typical American data has revealed many correlation and differences.
