Major Headings  
  • Specifications and measurement methods
  • Design viewing position and illumination range
  • Luminance contrast
  • Color
  • Alphanumerical character dimensions
  • Pixel matrixes character format
  • Reflections and glare
  • Characteristics of presentation
Summary  

This international standard gives minimum specifications for the image quality of displays that contain dynamic (changeable) visual information for road vehicle drivers from an on-board Transport Information and Control System (TICS) used while the vehicle is in motion, so that those displays are legible.

The specifications described in this standard are intended to be independent of display technologies. They address mainly the perceptual components and some basic cognitive components of the visual information (e.g., character legibility and color recognition). Other factors that affect performance and comfort (such as coding, format, and dialogue characteristics) are covered in other standards.

Major Headings  
  • Methodology
  • General parameters of experiments
  • Other considerations
Summary  

Various national, regional, and international standards organizations are responsible for the design, evaluation, and standardization of symbols, pictograms, and icons. To coordinate the work of these standards organizations, and to optimize the designs, it is desirable to follow a well-defined methodology. This recommendation describes a framework for a common methodology to be used by the ITU-T. To the extent that other standards organizations can work within this framework, the development of important designs should progress more rapidly. A uniform methodology will minimize duplication of effort and will maximize the relevance of collected data.

Traffic control devices are defined as all signs, signals, markings, and other devices used to regulate, warn, or guide traffic and placed on, over, or adjacent to a street, highway, pedestrian facility, or bikeway by authority of a public agency having jurisdiction.

The material described in this edition of the MUTCD provides the transportation professional with the information needed to make appropriate decisions regarding the use of traffic control devices on streets and highways. The material in this edition is organized to better differentiate between standards that must be satisfied for the particular circumstances of a situation, guidances that should be followed for the particular circumstances of a situation, and options that may be applicable for the particular circumstances of a situation.

Major Headings  
  • Luminance contrast

Summary  

Physical parameters that influence the legibility of an instrument panel display include: letter/graphic size; the luminance and color difference between graphics and background; the observer's luminance adaptation level; and the level of the glare present. Several aspects of visual functioning deteriorate as part of the normal aging process. These include: a reduction in luminance and color-contrast sensitivity; an increase in sensitivity to glare; a reduction in visual accommodation capacity; and a reduction in the sensitivity to light. This SAE information report provides introductory information that should be considered when setting photometric guidelines for instrument panel displays that are designed to accommodate the older driver.
