Abstract

Dashboards in modern vehicular interiors, accommodate multiple infotainment systems that allow continuous flow of non-essential information in order to maintain driver connectivity. This results in distraction of the driver’s attention from the primary task of driving, leading to a higher probability of collisions. This paper presents a novel Head-Up Display (HUD) system which utilizes gesture recognition for direct manipulation of the visual interface. The HUD is evaluated in contrast to a typical Head-Down Display (HDD) system by 20 users in a high-fidelity Virtual Reality driving simulator. The preliminary results from a rear collision simulation scenario indicate a reduction in collision occurrences of 45% with the use of HUD. The paper overall presents the system design challenges and user evaluation results.
