Fuzzy Analytical Hierarchy Process Based Optimization of Rear View Mirror Design Parameters for Blind Spots Reduction in Heavy Transport Vehicles

While driving, blind spot is a key phenomenon related to the visibility of the driver. Blind Spots play a vital role in road accidents. Reduction of blind spot area is very much required to reduce the accidents. In this paper, an attempt is made to overcome the problems of blind spot by optimizing the design parameters used in the rear view mirror design of heavy transport vehicles. The blind spot of the existing body structure was studied in a public transport. First the area of blind spot of the existing body structure was studied and then the optimal design parameters are ranked by Fuzzy Analytical Hierarchy Process (FAHP). FAHP was also used to determine the weights of the design parameters and ranking of the vehicle body structures though a case study.
