Abstract: © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd. One of the most important tasks of the car manufacturer is the design of the interior space of the vehicle. Anthropometric characteristics of drivers are also important for designing cars. In this paper the determination of the pedal force has been performed. The force determination was made on digital human models for different populations, a total of 11 different populations of men and women. Analysing was done in the software package Ramsis and subjects were presented using mannequin. The obtained force values were different for different populations. The correlation between the anthropometric measures of the subjects and the force on the pedals was observed. By calculating Pearson R coefficient in both populations, female 5 % and male 95 %, it can be concluded that there is a good correlation between active foot pedal force and driver's height (R2 = 0.84 and R2 = 0.72, respectively). In the case of maximum values of passive forces R coefficient in both populations also have a good correlation between passive pedal force and driver's height (R2 = 0.89 for female 5% population and R2 = 0.69 for male 95 % population). The obtained results are important for designing the interior of the vehicle.
