Design of Graphic Displays for Driver Information and Communication Systems

Olaf Preißner

Up till now designers often employed the principle "more is better" so they included any kind of information they could think of together with the items they were tasked to include, then transferred it all in detail. The end-result was the incorporation of all available data without considering the characteristics of the medium or the user. A smart graphic, however, puts a greater challenge on the designer by including unique attributes. Smart graphics entice the user to interact with the display, the systems or the application and appealing to his aesthetic expectations while maintaining high quality appearance. It is totally user-friendly and uncomplicated thus avoiding misapplication. Smart graphic uses real time execution of all functions ensuring simple and fast interaction. Based on all of these attributes a limiting factor of performance is the capacity of the computer systems so a graphic has to adapt to the characteristics of the medium used. In the end, it also must satisfy high design expectations and user technical features.
