Integrated Approach Supporting Virtual Conception of Passenger Ergonomics in Automated Driving Cars

Mario Hirz, Patrick Rossbacher

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review


The paper introduces a comprehensive digital mock-up-based development method for ergonomics conception of automotive passenger compartments. The integrated approach enables consideration of different influencing parameters even during early layout and design phases, e.g. vehicle packaging, seating position, ergonomics evaluation, view- and safety-relevant aspects. A vehicle reference model is combined with human manikins and supports the generation of movement-induced envelop geometry to analyze ergonomics-related issues, as they occur in complex interior development of future car concepts.
