Experimental Evaluation of an In-Vehicle HMI by the Combination of a Head-Up Display and Steering Wheel Switch

Event: JSAE Autumn Conference
An experimental method is desired to evaluate both the operability and the influence on safety of in-vehicle devices while driving. We propose to measure the number of slips, operation time, total glance time, variations of steering angle and yaw angle as the objective test, as well as to employ subjective evaluations by participants. We conduct an experiment using a driving simulator to evaluate a center cluster panel switch an a new HMI (human-machine interface) with a head-up display (HUD) and steering wheel switch while following a lead vehicle on a highway. We also discuss the merits of the new HMI. Results indicate that the experimental method is effective for comprehensively evaluating in-vehicle devices and pointing out where improvements are needed.
