dc.description.abstract Data from a previous study of soldier posture and position were analyzed to develop statistical models to define accommodation in driver and squad seating positions in military vehicles. Using methods previously developed for automotive applications, new models were created for seating accommodation, eye location, head (helmet) clearance, knee clearance, and torso clearance. The resulting models are applicable to driver positions with a fixed heel point and a range of steering wheel locations typical of tactical vehicles. The models were developed based on driver posture data but could be used for other front seat environments (e.g., commander position) with certain assumptions. All of the models include the effects of body armor and body borne gear. en_US
