Robotic butt-in-seat testing

Ford produced this deadpan, precisely accented video narrated by engineer Svenja Fröhlich, about testing the repeated interaction of car seats and human butts. The official Ford announcement says:

“A robot has been created to move like a human behind – and perfectly simulate how drivers and passengers get in and out of their car seats. Engineers used pressure maps to establish a “perch pattern”, the data enabling them to test the wear and tear of materials, using the robotic bottom – or ‘Robutt’ – to mimic the most common paths.”

(Thanks to Scott Langill for bringing this to our attention.)
