An investigation into the use of virtual reality technology for passenger infotainment in a vehicular environment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents a novel Human-Computer Interaction design approach for an automotive direct manipulation interface, aiming primarily to act as a younger passengers' interactive infotainment system in order to minimize driver distraction. The proposed design is applied in the peripheral windscreens with the use of a novel Head-Up Display system. The system evaluation by twenty users offered promising results discussed in the paper.
