Scope
Content
This SAE Standard describes head position contours and procedures for locating the contours in a vehicle. Head position contours are useful in establishing accommodation requirements for head space and are required for several measures defined in SAE J1100. Separate contours are defined depending on occupant seat location and the desired percentage (95 and 99) of occupant accommodation.
This document is primarily focused on application to Class A vehicles (see SAE J1100), which include most personal-use vehicles (passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, pick-up trucks). A procedure for use in Class B vehicles can be found in Appendix B.
Rationale
Content
This revision incorporates new fixed seat head position contours which were derived from the fixed seat eyellipses specified in SAE J941:2008. The fixed seat eyellipses were based on recent unpublished UMTRI research data regarding passengers sitting in non-adjustable rear seats.
A point on the top of the head position contours (TOC) was added to Figures 2 and 3. The TOC point is used for dimensions in SAE J1100.
