      Quick Facts

      Full project name

      Virtual Driver Ergonomics

      Duration

      January 2017 – January 2019

      Partners

      Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre (FCC), Scania CV AB, Volvo Car Corporation, Volvo Technology AB

      Financing

      KK-foundation through the INFINIT research environment at University of Skövde, The participating organisations

      The aim of the Virtual Driver Ergonomics project (KK-stiftelsen/INFINIT Dnr 20160296) was to carry out research related to the development of the Swedish digital human modelling (DHM) tool IPS IMMA so that it is able to assist product developers in the vehicle industry to perform fast and objective virtual driver-vehicle interaction analyses of physical ergonomics.

      The aim is a tool with high usability that supports and automates the simulation work. More specifically the project will focus on how to enable fast and objective simulations of virtual driving test routines and subsequent ergonomics evaluations and comparisons of design alternatives.
