AbstractThe objective is to simulate and predict the performance of Army personnel riding in a ground vehicle subject to vibrations. Established software tools are available for parts of this problem: anthropometrics for reach and vision analysis, vehicle dynamicsfor vibration and ride quality analysis, and biodynamics for human motion in response to force inputs. In Phase I we propose to write a software specification to integrate selected software components that will efficiently and accurately set up and analyzethis class of problems. The team members own the source code that will be integrated (JACK, VDANL and BIODYNE). The innovation is to use manual control as a means to define and measure task performance. Representative closed loop tasks such as driveravoidance maneuvers or target tracking will be defined, and the vehicle will be considered
