In this chapter, four experiments were reported. The first study is to identify factors of seating comfort. Next, the survey of relationship between seat location and sitting posture is reported. It is followed by the validation of aircraft cabin simulator. Lastly, the validation experiment of smart neck support system is described. The validation experiment is to validate the developed smart systems for neck support in a simulated “real life” setting. The aim of a developed smart system is to support the passenger's head and reduce passenger neck muscle stress during air travel adaptively. Experimentally measurements were obtained using attached EMG electrodes.
