Development of a Color Irregularity Evaluation Method for Interior Resin Parts

The matching of colors of the adjoining interior parts of an automobile is an important issue in interior design. Presently, the grained leather pattern is arranged on the surfaces of the interior parts, and this pattern makes it difficult to identify color irregularities during the visual sensory evaluation. An evaluation formula is used to evaluate the measured colors, but there is a problem: the experimental evaluation does not correspond with the visual sensory evaluation. To accurately reproduce the visual sensory evaluation, we have developed a new evaluation technique. This paper reports on this new technique.
