Abstract

The proliferation of infotainment systems in the contemporary vehicular environment offers an abundance of information which is typically not distilled or prioritised according to the driver's requirements and driving conditions. Additionally, this requires from the driver to operate multiple interfaces, resulting in an overwhelming cognitive load and a higher probability of collision. Our work presents a new multimodal Head-Up Display interface that aims to enhance human responses during a potential collision whilst moderate the plethora of incoming information through a simplified and manageable system. The latter is fully interactive and operated with the use of an embedded gesture recognition system. The proposed system was evaluated by comparison to a traditional Head-Down Display interface system by twenty users, with the use of a high-fidelity driving simulator. The results were in favour of the proposed system which reduces the collision propensity by 90% in a motorway environment.
