Abstract

Fatigue can cause discomfort to the driver while driving a car. This is because the driver grips the steering wheel hardly. The high handgrip force can cause a pain and discomfort to the driver. Driving in a long time can cause carpal tunnel syndrome to the driver. The purpose of this project is to analyze the handgrip force and hand movement on Perodua steering wheel. This experiment will be done on two Perodua cars which are Perodua Myvi and Perodua Alza. A Tekscan Grip System is used to take the handgrip data of the driver while driving. Then, the device is connected to the driver‟s hand and the measurement is taken. This experiment will be done at North South Highway which is from Ayer keroh to Tangkak. The driver needs to drive the car in the highway with maintain speed which is 80km/h. The distance of the highway is about 30km which is it will take about 20 minutes to reach the destination. The volunteer needs to hold the steering wheel in 9 and 3 o‟clock position which is the safest position of holding the steering wheel. The result of the handgrip force will be compared between two cars and the result of the grip force will be related to hand movement while driving.
