Interior Package

In order to optimise the interior package and visibility, Ford's engineers developed and first used on the new Ford Mondeo a new Computer Aided Virtual Engineering (CAVE) system.

CAVE uses a combination of computers and projectors to create a virtual life-sized interior of a car. Using a specially designed rig, a real car seat is fixed into the appropriate position for the 'driver' who can then evaluate all-round visibility as well as comfort levels for reaching the steering wheel and operating major controls.
This system proved invaluable in early customer clinics to gauge reaction to the new model and as a platform for existing Mondeo drivers to voice their opinions as the new model advanced. It also enabled the team to make fast and cost-effective changes to a virtual representation of their designs. The CAVE system is a good example of the many cost-effective measures that were introduced to key areas of the car's development - with added benefits for the finished product and ultimately for customer satisfaction.
