CAVA Manikin

CAVA Manikin

Within the sphere of ergonomics, SAE Standards specify a two-dimensional test dummy, for use in determining the various passenger positions. The dummy can be positioned according to the many different options relating to the geometric guidelines or specifications for the angle of the body and relevant parameters. 

Using the contours of the head position and the eye view points and ellipses, all the relevant SAE parameters, such as headroom or legroom, can be verified. Positioning is also possible across or against the direction of travel. 

Generally speaking, the application is used - analogue in the case of OVA - very early on at the concept stage and is completed during the course of development.
