    Abstract

    Technology has changed significantly over the years. As a result, consumer expectations, in terms of performance, have risen. In Western society, the comfort of products has developed into important issue. Air travels, especially long distance, expose passengers a number of factors that may cause both physiological and psychological discomfort. Passenger comfort is clearly a main factor in user's acceptance of transportation systems. In order to reduce the stress in air travel, an intelligent system is proposed to integrate into the aircraft passenger seat. The paper describes the development of smart neck support system that will improve the aircraft passenger comfort. We conducted experiments in the aircraft cabin simulator to validate smart neck support system. Surface electromyography is used to measure the sternocleidomastoid stress. The results showed that smart neck
