Study of Automobile Meter From Universal Point of View-Efficiency of Ambient Meter Device

We assumed that the ordinary warning light is not enough for drivers to notice an emergency while driving. In this study, we developed a so-called "ambient meter,' which tells an emergency with making the ambient of the meter turn red, and studied it effectiveness, and studied its effectiveness based on a driving test. It turned out to be significant for younger drivers to notice an emergency with the ambient meter, though there was little difference between the ordinary meter and the suggested ambient meter for older drivers. It would be important to keep addressing a more universal and effective design and development of meters.
