Presently, the Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association of the United States, Inc. is sponsoring research to determine drivers' eye locations in various vehicles. Driver eye position data were collected for fifty subjects as they drove a standard sedan and a van truck. For both vehicle types comparisons were made between data collected in a laboratory buck, a static vehicle, and in a moving vehicle. The purpose of the study is to collect eye position data to enable comparisons of eye position data as a function of vehicle package geometry. In particular, the closeness of the compact car's structure to the driver's body may restrict movement and thus result in smaller eyellipses.
