CAR - Car Augmented Reality
The goal of CAR is to create a collaboration platform for computer scientists (UI programmers) and non-technicans (human factors, psychologists etc.). The platform allows collaborative design of visualizations and interaction metaphors to be used in the next-generation cars with Head-Up Displays. We focus on two scenarios: parking assistance and a tourist guide.
On the technical level we try to incoperate techniques like: layout of information on multiple displays, active user interfaces based on user modelling with eyetracking and an improved User Interface Controller with a rapid prototyping gui. Additionally a dynamically configurable set of filters (each having an appropriate gui for tuning parameters) is provided, which can be easily instantiated and deployed with DIVE.
