Therefore, not only the proper communicational interface, but also the comfortable seats are important to drivers.
Therefore, the placement of GPS display of car-interior was investigated, firstly. Then, the experiment was done by a driving simulator and the comfort level was analyzed by NASA-TLX, blink rate and GPS accuracy. For tall-male group, the movement of seat is 540mm-610mm, the height of seat is not specific, the inclination of seat is 95°-100° and the height of GPS display is 580mm. For average-male group, the movement of seat is 540mm-610mm, the height of seat is 145mm-160mm, the inclination of seat is 95°and the height of GPS display is 580mm. For short-male, the movement of seat is 540mm, the height of seat is 145mm, the inclination of seat is 95° and the height of GPS display is 580mm. For female group, the movement of seat is 540mm, the height of seat is145mm, the inclination of seat is 100° and the height of GPS display is 580mm. The postural angles was analyzed that drivers might feel uncomfortable at the 30-minute, but the blink rate was analyzed that when the driving process was over the 25-minute, the drivers may tend to feel uncomfortable.
Finally, the back-propagation neural network was done with the input (height, weight and the dimensions of the parts of body of subjects) and the output (NASA-TLX, GPS display accuracy and blink rate). The forecasting model is good for car-interior designer and the drivers.
