Abstract

BMW Group has a UK based design studio designing Mini, MG, and Rover cars as well as Land Rover 4×4 vehicles. The corporate philosophy is that ergonomics is fundamental to the overall design process and must be integral to it from day one. Ergonomists therefore work closely with other design professionals through an established working process, to ensure the success of the ensuing vehicle designs.
