H-Point Measurement: Competitive
|Publication Date:||1 June 2018|
This document provides test methods for evaluating the competitive Hip Point (H-Point) measurement. This procedure is to be used on competitive/Non-GM vehicle seat measurements.
This procedure is to be used on competitive/Non-GM vehicle seat measurements. These test procedures apply to complete seat systems (production seats or prototypes built at the intended manufacturing quality); Testing must be performed on complete seat backs and complete seat cushions. Tests performed on subsystems or individual components will not be considered valid. For convenience and simplicity, many terms associated with H-Point devices use human body parts in their name. However, terms should not be construed as measures that indicate interaction with any or all occupants concerning accommodation, human capabilities, or comfort. H-Point devices do not represent the size or posture of any category of occupant.
