PSA Groupe Presentation on The Seat Effects on the Neuromuscular Fatigue during Long Duration Driving

PSA Groupe Presentation on The Seat Effects on the Neuromuscular Fatigue during Long Duration Driving

Seat with soft foam should be better to reduce the neuromuscular fatigue. 

Find out in this exclusive presentation by PSA Groupe on the seat effects on the neuromuscular fatigue during long duration driving. The presentation summarizes the study on static simulator and dynamic car driving, which was recently performed by Groupe PSA. The research compares 3 different seats (2 serial and 1 new concept) and discusses a new method to assess the seat efficiency for driver fatigue.

Hyundai Presentation: Development of a Predictive Technology for Seat Emotion

Hyundai Presentation: Development of a Predictive Technology for Seat Emotion

The Presentation is a summary of a study which proposed a predictive technology for seat hugging feel using sitting body pressure on virtual environment. To develop a seat hugging feel prediction system, a five-step ergonomic research was conducted: S1. feasibility study, S2. hugging quantification, S3. hugging experiment, S4. hugging analysis, and S5. hugging evaluation system development. Pressure appearance ratio (PAE) and pressure appearance unevenness (PAUE) of mid-back and side were found significant (adj. R2 = 73%) on seat hugging feels. A statistical equation for quantifying hugging feels was developed and embedded into a seat emotion prediction system. The proposed system can contribute to efficient and quantitative seat development.
