Benchmark H-Point Procedure
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Modifications of the SAE J4003 procedure account for physical installation differences between the HPM I and HPM II in the cushion pan, back pan and leg assemblies.
Modifications of the SAE J1516 document account for the SAE recommended practice using the BOFRP located on the shoe rather than the BOF reference located on the pedal introduced in SAE J4002.
Procedures are included for the setup and alignment of the vehicle.
Procedures are included to account for changes in the cushion angle that occur in seats with independent lift and tilt mechanisms.
Procedures are included for determining the H-point travel box.

The Human Accommodation and Design Devices Standards Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports related to tools, models and procedures to create and improve the occupant package ergonomic layout of the vehicle's interior tools and procedures for consistent measurement of vehicle dimensions and seat dimensions taken during design, benchmarking, and auditing. The committee actively leads and works to have its standards adopted internationally. Participants in the SAE Human Accommodation and Design Devices Standards Committee include OEMs, suppliers, academicians, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties.
