For the lack of evaluating means for research on ergonomics of armored vehicles in the armored vehicle design, based on anthropometry, human models were customized according to those data on Jack software. Virtual models of armored vehicle’s cabins were created that based on “virtual model-unit-motion object” structure. The method of ergonomics evaluation based on virtual human changed the conventional mode of armored vehicle development. It would make armored vehicle design and ergonomics evaluation synchronously. Ergonomics problems would be found and solved before the armored vehicle had been manufactured. It would be an effective way of saving cost and shortening development period.
