Abstract

This paper looks at how Digital Human models can be used with Virtual Reality to understand the seat comfort in airplane economy class seats from the perspective of obese passengers. Participants were placed in a virtual environment similar to an economy class cabin and were asked to rate their perception of the space and other comfort parameters. The results showed that the participants experienced space crunch when they saw through the perspective of an obese person. This paper holds the future for a step towards ergonomics analyses using Digital Human Modeling and Virtual Reality.
