Its purpose is to let drivers more easily access information on their vehicles. The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of driving information and elements of HUD on drivers. The experiment of this study consists of two stages.
For the first stage, a questionnaire survey is conducted in the preliminary study to understand the general opinion of the perception and cognition of HUD users, as well as the relationship of background transparency and text color with visibility. Results of the preliminary study are as follows:
(1) The percentage of people that heard of HUD (62.5%) was higher than the
percentage of people that used HUD (34.7%). The main reason that people used
HUD was because it was already in the car when they bought it (60%).
(2) The questionnaire on users’ perception and cognition indicates that most subjects held a positive attitude towards the integration of HUD with vehicle information, and that they were very willing to use the technology.
(3) HUD users have higher opinions of the technology integrating HUD with vehicle information compared with those who haven’t used HUD before.
(4) In the survey on vehicle information, car speed related information, e.g. carspeed and speed limit, ranked at the top.
(5) In the study on the relationship between background transparency and text color with visibility, higher contrast between interface information and background increases the visibility of interface information.
Next, experiment variables found in the preliminary study and literature review, e.g.speed information (green, orange, blue, and white), different quantitative displays (round,level, digital, and round + digital), and different figures of speed limit (solid, outline),were used in an orthogonal array L16 to design 16 interfaces, which were used for driving simulations and the questionnaire for user interface satisfaction (QUIS). Results show that
static warning signs, e.g. speed limit signs, are best displayed as outlines; round figures(similar to the speedometer) are better for displaying quantities, e.g. car speed. In terms of color, it is better for information to be displayed in white with higher brightness.
Automobile interfaces are becoming more and more high-tech and diverse as a result of the automobile industry’s development. However, among the multitudes of products in the market, only those that give consideration to people’s needs and abilities will be accepted and used, and only then will products have value and meaning for existence.
