seats have come a long way, such that, from the rigid benches drivers were forced to plop their bottoms on many decades ago, and today’s seats are often a major part of the driving experience. Many have built-in heaters and are packed with electronic controls and even memories that to specific drivers.
As with any part of a , seats go through a whole lot of to make sure they’re going to last, and wants customers to know that it has their butt in mind. In a new , Europe shows off its buttocks that not only replicates the movements of a human driver, but also sweats into the seat just like you might after a nice workout.
The — which is actually kind of gross — shows Ford’s seat-testing arm equipped with a faux human butt. The “Robutt,” as calls it, drops down on the test seat like a human would, and over the course of three days, it puts the seat through an incredible torture test.
The “simulates a decade’s worth of use in just three days.” says it accomplishes that by twisting and bouncing in the seat some 7,500 times, revealing any that might be present in the seat’s design.
But to really make the butt feel like the real deal, equipped it with a system that produces fake sweat. The butt is heated to an average body and then soaked 450 milliliters of water, according to the company. This simulates what might happen if a person makes it a habit to hop into their shortly after a spirited sprint or other lengthy workout.
In 2018, Ford Europe tested other lengthy workouts on its new Fiesta, but the system apparently works so well that it is rolling the test out to all Ford vehicles in Europe. As a big name in the automobile industry, Ford is keeping up to the expectation of the customers especially those in Europe by putting other factors into consideration for their car models, such includes when the owner is sweat. The idea will help to keep owners comfortable while in the not withstanding their body or sweaty condition.
There is possibility of extending this new technology in modern ford cars beyond Europe to other parts of the world as time progresses.
