Abstract

One of the most important contributions of ergonomics knowledge to the automobile design process is the characterization of physical size of driver and his/her preferred postures [9]. An experiment conducted by Costanzo et. al (1999) detected the different levels of muscular fatigue between correct and incorrect postures [2]. Awkward postures and high vibration exposure while in driving position might result in high risk condition for musculoskeletal disorders [4]. There have been many past research and experiments conducted in driver's car posture [1,3,4,5,6,7,8,10,11]
