The purpose of the research project described in this paper is to improve the efficiency of product development processes by exchanging knowledge and experiences about user centred design methods and technologies between the two branches: vehicle and health care industries. The health care industry can benefit from visualisation and simulation tools that include computer manikins; a physical representation of the human; and the vehicle industry can benefit from manikins having personal characteristics; which has proven to be successful in the health care industry.

Keywords: Visualisation; simulation; human characteristics; user representation; product development
