University of Michigan Fall 2009 Industrial and Operations Engineering 437 Automotive Human Factors © Paul Green Field of View Experiment Link to lecture Background A moderate number of children are killed each year, sometimes by their parents, because parents cannot see their children while backing their vehicle. Expected Learning Objectives To teach you manual methods to determine some aspects of the field of view What you are to do: Make a gray cylinder that is 3 feet tall and 12 inches in diameter, roughly the size of a small child standing erect. (Children riding on bicycles and tricycles, crawling, etc., are also killed, but to keep the problem simple, only the standing situation will be examined.) One way to make a cylinder of the desired size is to get a sheet of cardboard that is 3 feet wide and at least 37.68 in long (pi * diameter) and roll it to form a cylinder, taping the edges. Another possibility is to roll up a 3-foot carpet runner and tie it with string. Then, working in groups of 2 or 3 have each person sit in 2 test vehicles.
