3-legged Daan

Meet Daan, my three legged friend. He helps me when I have ergonomic issue to solve. He is Dutch and a 97.5%ile adult male, the largest type of manikin used for anthropometric evaluation in transport design human factors. Daan sat on the XJ600-e to see how it felt. Without any farings he had a approx 25mm clearance to the cells, his knees were also clear of the cells and did not collide into the cells throughout a longitudinal range of movement pivoting from the hip. This is good. It means that the technology packaging is still feasible with an occupant/rider. His feet easily reach the ground but he is very tall so this is not very representative of a mass population. I will introduce Ms. Xhang, a 2.5%ile Chinese adult female to the environment soon. She is the the smallest type of manikin used for anthropometric evaluation in transport design human factors. No doubt she will have some problems reaching the floor. But then she always does unless it is a low riding style bike. Goodnight!
