The goal for team CITA (Chair in the Air) is to design an ergonomic, cost efficient and good looking crane operator unit, used in harbours. Having a commonly used truck seat as a centre for our design we are left with designing armrests, chair movements and upper-body-supports attached to the seat.
We are trying to improve the comfort of the driving position, making the chair easier to adjust than in current designs and creating better ways for operators to find and utilize all the features that improve their working quality. Successful realization of the task will lead to the manufacturing process starting already within year 2012.
