Abstract

Technology has changed trucks 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 an important issue. Truck manufacturers recognize comfort as one of the major selling point, as it is thought to play an important role for buyers as well. In addition, employers are getting interested in comfortable equipment for their employees in order to create a healthy and stimulating working environment. The seat is one of the most important components for truckdriver. They are the place where professional truck driver spend most of their time. The aim of this paper is to describe the measurement methods that are used to improve the physiological comfort of truck driver’s seat. The paper has 3 sections.
