How can daylight be simulated in a laboratory environment for the assessment of in-vehicle displays?
This research is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover Limited (JLR).
The purpose of the project is to create a daylight comparable environment to perform vehicle interior evaluations under high ambient lighting conditions. Testing performed under these conditions aid both the design and verification stages of production.
The evaluations of particular interest to this project are regarding readability of in vehicle display screens using the Perceived Just Noticeable Difference (PJND) method to assess the glare and washout caused by adverse lighting conditions within the vehicle.
