Heavy equipment blends complex operations with significant safety issues. As such, the use of digital human body simulator can be especially valuable in enhancing operator performance and minimizing exposure to risk of injury. Our experience working with companies in this sector has revealed that a trial-and-error approach to addressing operator-centric cab space design is common. It results in budget and deadline overruns as well as compromised cab-operator performance. Human-centric design through trial-and-error exists because the digital human body simulator tools and methods that had been available were only able to react to existing designs. While expensive and time-consuming, trial and error was the only option available. But not any longer.
SantosHuman now provides a predictive digital human body simulator that can be used to proactively evaluate operator-in-the-loop issues at the earliest stages of design. It eliminates the need for trial and error.
Place user comfort, safety and satisfaction first—include Santos technologies as a predictive virtual design partner to evaluate control and cab design at the start of the design process. Virtual operator-in-the-loop analysis is easier than ever before with the powerful, flexible environment Santos has designed to predict human behavior and performance. Analyze your cab, seat, steering wheel, mirrors and more for operators of all sizes and take design to the next level.
