ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR AUTOMOTIVE SEAT EVALUATION AND DESIGN

Objetivo


The following key achievements have been reached and demonstrated:

- a new product development process for seat engineering is operating within the development centers of the industrial partners joining the consortium

- a network for R & D in seat engineering is operating as a result of the know-how achieved by universities and research center belonging to the consortium

- the achieved results on criteria for comfort and safety represent the starting point to address the evolution of related European Normatives and Standards.

The value as well as the expected return of the above mentioned achievements is remarkable, this is the consequence of the continuous rise of the expectations as well as the functions related to the seat systems, determining a key role of the Engineering Platform for developing new products for automotive seating.
SED has the objective of developing criteria, methodologies, data bases and numerical tools for evaluation and design of car seats.

The involved disciplines are biomechanics, ergonomy and numerical and experimental modeling of complex, non linear dynamic systems, material science, computer science.

The themes adressed by this prenominative research are safety, recyclability, posture comfort, thermal comfort, ride comfort.
