Scope
Content
This SAE Standard provides the specifications and procedures for using the H-point machine (HPM1) to audit vehicle seating positions. The HPM is a physical tool used to establish key reference points and measurements in a vehicle (see Figure 1 and Appendix A). The H-point design tool (HPD) is a simplified CAD2 version of the HPM, which can be used in conjunction with the HPM to take the optional measurements specified in this document, or used independently during product design (see Appendix D).
These H-point devices provide a method for reliable layout and measurement of occupant seating compartments and/or seats. This document specifies the procedures for installing the H-point machine (HPM) and using the HPM to audit (verify) key reference points and measurements in a vehicle.
The devices are intended for application at designated seating positions. They are not to be construed as tools that measure or indicate occupant capabilities or comfort. They are not intended for use in defining or assessing temporary seating, such as folding jump seats.
Rationale
Content
This revision consolidates the HPM-II/ASPECT manikin auditing and calibration into one document. Minor updates have been included to optional measurement procedures to reflect current practices. Procedures for auditing the seat have been reaffirmed per the SAE Five-Year Review policy.
For HPM-I audit and calibration procedure, please refer to SAE J826.
