Cockpit ergonomics - Optimize The Ergonomics of a Car Cluster with VR

Cockpit ergonomics

Optimize the ergonomics of a car cluster or a plane’s cockpit with virtual reality. How will customers react to a newly-launched vehicle? Will it be comfortable to drive? Will the driver be at ease to reach and manipulate all commands of the cluster? Will he have a good and large vision? All those questions must be answered by car or aircraft manufacturers, in order to guarantee the driver’s safety on the road with maximum comfort.

Historically, engineers have been making prototypes in order to test a new car or a new aircraft, and to answer all those needs. Yet, making a physical prototype can be really expansive and time consuming. They have to make various prototypes as those designs require constant changes to adapt to new regulations, and many reviews before reaching production. So, using TechViz to visualize a car prototype in virtual reality can help reduce costs and time-to-market. Any prototype can be visualized, checked and validated in an instant.

Use cases

  • Check if the vehicle conforms to safety requirements
  • Analyze reachability and accessibility
  • Check ergonomics of the onboard computer and GPS HMI with TechViz Finger Tracking and a vibro tactile feedback
  • Enhance the creative process: personalize a vehicle by changing the dashboard, options or rearview mirrors

Advantages of checking and validating cockpit ergonomics

  • Ergonomic reviews carried out in real time
  • Evaluation of comfort, efficiency and safety on the same virtual prototype
  • Cost and time saving
  • Faster time-to-market
  • Compatible with +200 applications like Catia, NX, Creo
