[HOW-TO] Precise measurement for car seat lumbar positions

March 6, 2015

AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURING & DESIGN: Lumbar Support Measurement

A frequent application in the development of car seats is the portrayal of the position and the adjustment path of the lumbar support.

The FARO® ScanArm is ideally suited for this application as the lumbar support can be quickly and easily scanned in several positions. The position can be displayed directly in the software and the adjustment path is visualized by a pseudo-color comparison.

NOTE: While this video shows the FARO Edge ScanArm ES, all of our current FARO Quantum FaroArm® and ScanArm family is perfect for this application.
