Abstract [en]

In today’s vehicles more advanced system have been developed to enhance the driving performance.To accommodate all information required, the original in-vehicle instrument panels are more often replaced with LCD-displays. The use of LCD-displays makes it notonly easier to change the design of what is shown on the display, but it also leads to the possibility of designing the system so it increases the driver's experience. In this thesis a graphical user interface on the instrumental cluster was developed where shadows and highlights moved depending on exterior light condition in order to create a more realistic feeling and also to increase the user experience and usability while driving. This thesis is based on a patent application from 2013 conducted by Volvo Cars in Gothenburg. Volvo was also the client for this work. The work was conducted in the spring and summer of 2015 consisting of a number of methods required to develop this user interface. For instance methods such as 3D-visualisation, image- and video editing and programming were conducted to receive the desired result. The result of the user testing indicated that the user interface contributed to increasing the user experience but also received positive reviews regarding usability.
