In this paper, we analyzed the connotation of hip point, related ergonomics theories and industrial standard. Based on these analysis and hip point, this research outlined of man-machine relationships of operating device layout design in vehicle cab for improving safety, efficiency and comfort of the driver’s operation. Moreover, we designed a simulation environment to analyze vehicle interface. With the development of the automobile industry and the maturity of the related technologies, the popularity of the automobile is more and more extensive. It is necessary to start designing from the perspective of “people oriented”.
