Early in 1980's Japanese vehicles appeared on the world and
Australian market with electronic instrumentation.
This paper covers the design and development of the extremely
sophisticated instrumentation developed for the local
manufacturers, and the level of technology achieved to produce
instrumentation comprising of both analogue and digital
presentation, combined triple display tripcomputer, alpha-numerical
message centre, and system monitoring.
These designs have in many ways outstripped their American and
Japanese counter parts and are among the most advanced in the world
