ERGONOMIC DRIVING COMPARTMENT DESIGN FOR SMALL TRUCKS - TERGO II

ERGONOMISK FOERARPLATSUTFORMNING I SMAA TRUCKAR - TERGO II

This report describes a project to investigate the possibilities of developing the driver's environment in trucks where the driver sits in angle. The report recommends the development and evaluation of the TERGO concept for an ergonomically adapted truck with a swivelling and tilting driver's seat. The conclusion is that the concept has been proved viable, and it is anticipated that the risks of work injuries can be reduced and, at the same time, the driver's work situation improved.
