This paper considers the design of seat adjustment controls, as part of an EPSRC-funded research project investigating the future of Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs) in the premium automotive industry. The study takes a user-centred approach to collecting customer data relating to controls on existing vehicles, and applies sensory science techniques in an automotive engineering arena to address the affective elements of seat adjustment control design. A 101-participant customer clinic event was therefore held, with additional data sourced from a commercial survey. The data sets are analysed to make recommendations relating to functional and emotional aspects of seat adjustment control design.
