The objectives of the investigation were to: (1) Establish the utility of the anthropometric compliance tool as a field test instrument; (2) determine the reliability of tool measurements; and (3) formulate recommendations for tool redesign or tool procedure modification. The tool evaluation was conducted by means of an empirical investigation of its accuracy, reliability, and usability in five types of vehicles. Subjects were selected for this investigation to be representative of the general population of compliance test personnel. The tool was evaluated in terms of its capability to measure to two foot controls and three hand controls. Measures of performance included time to assemble, install, and use the tool, procedural erros, and tool accuracy and reliability in measuring distances to controls with respect to the seating reference point.
