Visual Quality Measures
Purpose and goal
A clear trend within the automotive industry is the growing complexity and diversity of electronic systems that are integrated in cars. That includes traffic safety systems, driver support systems and entertainment systems. What these systems have in common, regardless of their purpose and functionality is the need for these to present their information visually to the user. The project´s aim is to understand how to guarantee the visual quality of the presented information depending on current conditions. Quality refers here not to subjective liking, but to a scientifically sound theory of how to best render visual cues with the automobile driver´s special requirements in mind.
Results and expected effects
Clear specifications of how visual information is rendered in a traffic environment with applications to traffic safety. Demonstration of technical solutions that fulfil target specifications. Spin-off projects with applications in consumer electronics. Industry cooperation and academic research in Sweden.
Approach and implementation
Development of demonstration hardware will be done in cooperation between VCC and Epsilon, while algorithms and theoretical models are developed in cooperation with SA, FCC and CTH. The project is planed between 2009 and 2011.
