Abstract: When designing for human variability in the interior cab design for a vehicle, it becomes difficult to predict an optimum driver seat adjustment range. This paper proposes an optimisation-based approach to determine the seat adjustment range without the need for population sampling and stochastic posture prediction. This paper uses boundary anthropometric digital human models, a 95% male and a 5% female, to establish the driver seat adjustment range for vehicles. The simulation predicts the optimum posture of the seated driver inside the vehicle, and also gives an indication of how comfortable the driver is while seated in the predicted posture.
