The study of ergonomics for auto-vehicles, mainly consider that how an auto vehicle can be designed better for human use. Study of ergonomics deals with comfort, safety and some health problems for drivers and also for passengers. Auto vehicle needs proper designing to overcome from these basic but crucial problems. In this paper, we study about the overall design and contour of the vehicle seat design into the consideration of comfort-discomfort, safety not only for drivers but also for passengers. Pain, shoulder pain, by the continuously driving there is so many chances of lower back pain, injury from lifting increased due to improper design and unbalanced pressure distribution. Overall contour and proper designing directly or indirectly affects human’s life.
