Ergonomic Design of Electric Car Cockpit

H. Soewardi and J. A. A. N. Nindiyanti
Abstract—Comfortable cockpit is an important component in a car specially provided for driver while driving. This facility may provide space for freely move to maneuver and control the car. However many drivers complain about some problems on part of the body such as neck, upper and lower back, waist, buttock, thighs, and knees. Thus it is crucial to develop new cockpit. Objective of this study is to design the ergonomic cockpit for electrical car satisfying user. Independent axiomatic design is a method to determine design parameter of the cockpit by mapping from costumer attributes and functional requirements. Anthropometric data of driver is used to support the design. Statistical analysis is conducted to test the hypothesis. On the basis of the study, it is revealed that the proposed electric car design corresponds to user requirement at 5% significance level.

Index Terms—Comfortable cockpit, axiomatic design, electric car, ergonomic.
