This project presents the factors that are crucial in improving the design of seat belt based on the specific related measurement and others. The problem arises in the usage of seat belt if the driver’s body deviates from average anthropometric measurements may cause the driver feel not comfortable during driving task also feel not comfortable and for pregnant woman they feel discomfort, fear of harming the fetus when seat belt on. Anthropometric data is playing a main role in the design development to create an ergonomic product which is seat belt in the car. Appropriate use of anthropometry in design may improve well being, health, comfort, and safety. Understanding the fundamental and get detailed information about seat belt design with part involved in Viva car that produced by PERODUA by a visit to the national car company, PERODUA and safety belt supplier, Autoliv Hirotako. The structured interview was involved with the gynaecologist to obtain information on the correct way to wear a car seat belt for pregnant women and determine the other parameters that important for pregnant woman using a seat belt when driving. A total of 30 respondents were asked or interviewed to determine the level of comfort when wearing a seat belt in certain areas and also to understand how pregnant women wear seat belts and any problems they experienced while driving. The data on 95 th percentile female Malaysian citizen will be compared with the data of 95 thpercentile American Male (AM). The result will generate guidelines and an information resource for designers in the automotive industry of national car seat belt and their supplier in order to improve the quality life of pregnant women or big size driver. In this project, a new design of a device had been designed by using CATIA software.
