Biomechanics & Human Factors

At CVG, we focus R&D efforts on analyzing how long hours behind the wheel of commercial and heavy duty vehicles affect operators. Safety is a priority as we strive to improve working conditions in cabs and continuously monitor how drivers are physically affected by long stretches in them.

To engineer safety and technology solutions that reduce operator distractions and improve cockpit ergonomics, CVG considers the human factor—what happens physically when operating commercial vehicles for lengthy periods of time.

Our Biomechanics and Ergonomics Simulation and Test (BEST) mobile laboratory monitors a vehicle operator’s gaze, reaction and muscular stress in real time. The findings guide CVG as we engineer innovative, top-notch operator stations—seats, controls and improved vision lines.
