STUDIES IN MOTOR VEHICLE REAR VISION: II. EVALUATION OF INNOVATIONS IN PASSENGER CAR AND TRUCK REAR VIEW SYSTEMS
Twelve innovative and one conventional passenger vehicle rear vision systems and three innovative truck rear vision systems were evaluated using driver information gathering behavior as the primary criterion measure. Systems were evaluated under actual on-the-road conditions, in freeway and city street environments, both day and night. In addition two ESV-mounted periscope systems were evaluated under simulated roadway conditions. Estimates of rear vision area criticality were derived using subjective judgment scaling techniques. Specific design factors, e.g., display location, multiple vantage points, minification are discussed.
