Advanced Night Vision Systems Concepts

In this paper we propose new concepts for human machine interfaces (HMI) of advanced night vision systems which differ in many aspects to state-of-the-art systems. The paper discusses human factors of night vision systems and analyses the influences of such systems to drivers. By taking the human factors results under consideration an enhanced night vision system has been developed. In contrast to traditional night-vision systems, the developed event-driven system interprets the current driving situation and generates warnings in possible dangerous situations only. The paper describes some important results of the event-driven system including the sensorial system, the scene interpretation as well as two possible HMI concepts for intelligent driver warning.
