General Motors Seat Testing

General Motors in the US have just announced the introduction of the new for 2013 Malibu saloon car. GM is making much of the development work its engineers have completed to ensure this new model is as comfortable as possible.

Using two XSensor PX100 sensors, offering over 4,600 sensor points, seat performance engineer Daniel Cohen, based at GM Test facility in Milford, Mich. used XSensor to record data of how people of all shapes and sizes are sitting and moving in the car. The data is recorded on a PC using XSensor Pro V6 software.  Using state of the art graphics, the Pro 6 software enables Daniel to examine the pressure distribution of both seats and backs, thereby ensuing the best possible pressure distribution and comfort for as wide a range of people as possible.

As XSensor can record and play back data in both static and dynamic test situations, this lab testing is then backed up by thousands of miles of  road testing.  GM seat performance engineer Cheryl Hajciar coordinates seat ride evaluations with several volunteers, ensuring sufficient feed back on seat prototypes
