Avoiding discomfort with the help of capacitive sensors
Conducted on behalf of Daimler AG, the objective of the driving simulator study is to validate the “Mobilization Seat” developed by Daimler Research.
Benefits of the Mobilization Seat
- Maintains the health and motivation of long-distance truck drivers
- Counteracts the lack of exercise
- Reduces sick days and stoppages.
The study is being conducted with 16 working long-distance truck drivers under realistic conditions in a driving simulator at the Fraunhofer IIS premises.
The simulator consists of a Mobilization Seat that encourages subjects not to sit still. The capacitive motion sensor technology integrated into the seat detects and analyzes movement behavior.
