Abstract

Proper driving requires a proper posture to bring comfort to drivers. A problem that commonly exists in driving is incorrect driving posture which can cause discomfort to the driver, especially when interacting with automotive pedals. Research on fatigue of Soleus muscle on driver's posture based on the knee angle more than 144° in a position of pressing and releasing a pedal was conducted to investigate and overcome this problem. This is a field experiment study and surface electromyography (sEMG) is used in collecting data on the Soleus muscle. The procedure of collecting data on the Soleus muscle before and after experiments follows the Surface Electromyography for the Non-Invasive Assessment of Muscles (SENIAM) recommendation. The result of the experiments shows that there is a strong positive relationship between driver's postures in nature based on the angle of the knee with Soleus muscle contraction, where the Pearson correlation coefficient (r) is .890. While the muscle fatigue index based on value MDF (MNF) in position of pressing a pedal. The results show that the Soleus muscle fatigue occurs when the foot pressing a pedal on MVC-normalized 60%. This is because the value of MDF (MNF) there is displacement of decrease of frequency MDF (MNF), from 130.21 Hz (313.42 Hz) to 127.60 Hz (312.49 Hz). The increase in the knee angle will directly provide discomfort to the driver while interacting with the pedal; and this is due to Soleus muscle fatigue.
