Ergonomic evaluation with human models is a beneficial approach in Virtual Engineering. However the customary way of working, i. e. using two-dimensional screen representations and pointing devices, together with a lack of standardized procedures, leads to some drawbacks concerning reliability, efficiency and related expenses. Within the SAFEGUARD project an explorative study was conduced in order to test a normative method of evaluating driver workplaces by human models in a stereoscopic projection room with three-dimensional interaction devices and speech control. The tests showed clear benefits compared to the customary method. But there are still further improvements required including in particular the optimisation of the interaction control loops. Furthermore it seems useful to integrate an electronic checklist and user support system into the virtual environment.
