This paper presents a mathematical model for determination of values of external dynamic moments of inertia of driver’s arm motions during driving, having been reduced onto the axes of a coordinate system located at the center of shoulder joint. As driver’s arm motions during driving represent a spatial mechanism, for connection of mechanism joints the Denavit-Hartenberg notation has been applied. The position and orientation of the mechanism joints during motion with respect to reference system at shoulder joint have been determined by applying the method of homogenous transformations.
