Abstract [en]

There has been a rapid growth in the vehicle industry market, companies are expected to provide comfortable and safer products, improving with every new model. Hence, the interest on developing Digital Human Modelling (DHM) tools that are focused on their needs.

The aim of this project is to suggest a standard seating posture that could be used with ergonomic software like IMMA, to address the research an initial literature study was performed to understand existing methods used in the industry and previous posture studies.

In order to visualize the extent of the topic, it was required to acquire information from the vehicle industries and make an investigation on preferred postures by real drivers.

Comparisons are made between the different categories of observed vehicles, and literature found for ideal postures. The results were also used to implement suggestions for the ergonomic IMMA software development
