Abstract: All the vehicles are exposed to vibrations caused by the roughness of the road or soil profile, which affects the health as well as causes discomfort to the occupants (driver and passengers). In the present study, Vibration Dose Value (VDV) has been recorded for the driver as well as the pillion of two wheeler vehicle for the different road profile having speed breakers, at different speed. The methodology adopted from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) guidelines for whole body vibration (WBV) exposure having frequency ranges from 0 to 100 Hz. VDV of six healthy male subjects was recorded through the Human Vibration meter via seat-pad tri-axial accelerometers for two minutes drive and psychophysical response were measured with the help of Borg CR10 scale. The Time to reach 15 VDV and comfort decreases with the increase in vehicle speed and speed breaker's height, for both driver and pillion. Pillion feels more discomfort with the increase in vehicle speed and speed breaker's height when compared with driver.
