Abstract : Because of the roughness of the terrain they encounter, cross country vehicles experience more shock and vibration than ordinary road vehicles. Hence off-road speed is usually limited by the ability of the operator to withstand these vibrations to negotiate and to retain adequate control of the vehicle. In addition to other factors, the comfort of the operator, which contributes to his general safety, also depends on the physical characteristics of the seat, which is the link between the driver and the vehicle.
