Week 10: Ergonomic testing

Before we began building our prototypes full-scale, we needed to make sure that ergonomically, any design changes did not affect the human factors of a user utilising the vehicle. Full-scale ergonomical mock-ups were built that had the measurements of the seat, handles and foot pedals, and were tested out by all the individuals in the class to ensure that it was still comfortable to ride.
