The VIVID Visual Simulation Tool: A Foresight Vehicle Project to Support Driver HMI Integration 2002-01-0819
The VIVID project is creating a visual simulation environment (based in VR technology) for designers and researchers to demonstrate and assess new concepts for integrated in-vehicle displays and the prioritization and timing algorithms to manage the information presented by multiple systems. VIVID is using the output of the INTEGRATE project which developed a structured human factors design approach for integrated system design. This tackled the problems that are likely to arise from the introduction of multiple driver systems each generating their own separate driver inputs and system outputs (i.e. high driver workload, impaired usability of systems and subsequent implications for safety and customer acceptance).
