    Abstract

    This paper presents a study towards articulating what it is considered to be a simple, prompt and efficient interface for a novel automotive Head-Up Display system. In particular, the proposed interface aims to improve the driver's spatial awareness and response times under low visibility weather conditions. The effectiveness of such Human Machine Interface (HMI) relies on the ability of the system to convey crucial information to the driver in a timely manner. Initial user trials have shown that the system delivers on its promise for an efficient, non-distracting information display conduit. Finally, the paper further outlines the evolution of the HMI design as a result of ongoing evaluation and user trials and offers suggestions for further research and a tentative plan for future work.
