An Ergonomic Investigation for Control Types and Menu Design Types of In-Vehicle Information System (IVIS) 2007-01-3514

The purpose of the study is to investigate the ergonomic issues for control types and menu design types of in-vehicle information system (IVIS). The results showed that 1) linear-type controls with linear-type menu design had better performance 2) rotary-type control with rotary-type menu design had good subjective preference score 3) the performance and subjective preference of IVIS interface were strongly influenced by the compatibility between control types and menu design types of IVIS 4) there was a tendency that the performance of IVIS tasks was better when the display was located at higher level on center fascia. The results can be applied to develop a new control and menu design of IVIS from ergonomic view points.
