An Interactive, Reconfigurable Display System for Automotive Instrumentation 860173
The decision to improve consumer interface with on-board vehicle systems in the new Buick Riviera presented many challenges. The major challenges were how to display the information and how to optimize the driver's interface with the display. Challenges were met with the development of an interactive and reconfigurable display system based on CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) and transparent membrane switch technologies. Human factors concerns were resolved, design requirements were met, limitations in existing technologies were overcome, and testing has verified that original design goals were met or exceeded.
