Working environment in moving vehicles on rough terrain is demanding challenge for design. Virtual prototyping is a modern method used increasingly for the design of off-road vehicles. The physical behaviour of a human under dynamic impact motions has been studied in different working situations. Typically the motions are exerted by a human e.g. when doing manual work tasks. The movements of e.g. vehicles can cause the motions, too. The issue is not only normal vibration but also single repeated swings. The interest was the data of physical behaviour of a driver or passenger sitting on a seat and doing simultaneously simple visual and manual task in normal driving situation. The test scenarios consisted of several motion features. The problem was how to measure the data in order to be utilised in virtual prototyping of off-road vehicle. The data was needed in developing a kinetic digital human model and simulation in virtual prototyping.
