13th AutoErg meeting

The 13th AutoErg meeting was held at MAN Truck & Bus in Nuremberg on October 18, 2018 with the main focus of “ bottleneck-oriented evaluation procedures”. Around 30 representatives from the automotive industry and science took part in the meeting organized by the Institute of Ergonomics at Darmstadt Technical University.

In three keynote lectures by representatives from BMW, Audi and IAD, the challenges, the objectives and the already developed concepts for body-segment-related risk analysis were presented. In a discussion based on this and a lively workshop, requirements for such procedures – related to data acquisition, analysis and output of the evaluation – were developed and subsequently presented. The next meeting of the AutoErg working group is already planned for April 2019 at Opel in Rüsselsheim
