Paper Abstract

One would think that since we have had automobiles on the road for over 70 years we would, by now, completely understand the role vision plays in driving. This is certainly not the case. Despite some excellent research in this field, we have just begun to formulate the questions which need asking. One cannot separate the optics of the vehicle from the driver, especially in the dynamic driving environment. The direct vision out of a vehicle should be such that the driver can acquire all the visual information necessary to safely perform his task and, at the same time, the quality of this information should be such that it is very unlikely that it be misinterpreted.
