FRAMEWORK OF AUGMENTED REALITY APPROACH TOWARDS ERGONOMIC ASSESSMENT OF DRIVER VEHICLE PACKAGE DESIGN
Keywords:Car ergonomic design, augmented reality, development
Human factor studies such as ergonomic evaluation become increasingly important in the engineering, automotive, designing and support of new advance products. Creating in-car gadgets that can be worked inside appropriate safety bound is an ergonomic issue. Several tools and methods have been developed for ergonomic evaluation. However, there are several factors that influence the difficulty of such evaluations, such as the subjectivity of comfort, high cost of mock-up systems and computerized tools, and the disadvantage of reconfiguring adjustments. The proposed system allows the user or engineer to obtain the three-dimensional visual model with the aid of additional equipment that includes a Augmented Reality head mounted display (HMD) to reduce the components of physical prototype. The user or engineer is able to determine the position of interior components to determine the most comfortable ergonomic reaching zone.Â Â
