There are significant differences between the steering wheel ergonomics and vice versa. The main purpose of the steering wheel is ergonomically designed to provide optimum comfort to the driver while grip the steering wheel, especially for the long journey. The objective of this project to analyze data about handgrip pressure on Proton and Perodua steering wheel. This project will be done by using two type of cars which are Proton Saga and Perodua Myvi. To collect the data of handgrip pressure while respondent drive the car, Tekscan Grip System will be used. Next, the device is connected to the driver’s hand which is the device is affixed to the glove and the measurement is taken. The road selection for this project will be started from KM 92.1 traffic light junction, entering North South Highway and will ended at the Exit of Toll Tangkak. During the experiment, all the volunteers need to maintain the speed in range 80-100km/h, but most of the time they have to drive in left lane unless to overtaking other vehicles. Distance from the beginning until the end is about 68.8km and the time taken will about 30 minutes. Besides, the drivers need to use 9 and 3 o’clock hand position on steering wheel since it is the safest position to hold the steering. Result from data analysis of handgrip pressure will be compared between these two types of car and the grip pressure will be related to left handed and right handed among the drivers.
