Paper Abstract

This paper concerns how to make automotive displays easy to use. Five questions are examined from the perspective of the general human factors and automotive-specific literatures. They are: Which kinds of displays are best for which tasks? How big should letters and numbers be? How should displays be arranged? How should gauges be marked? How well do drivers understand messages? In addition, examples of good and bad automotive displays are provided along with recommendations for improving the design process.
