Implementation of a graphical prototype for a train driver advisory system
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
In the past decade, Driver Advisory System (DAS) has become to a very emerging topic. There are several Driver Advisory Systems existing in the market. Those systems’ goals are to increase punctuality and decrease energy consumption by implementing several algorithms. A study – “Solutions to the Problem of Inconsistent Plans in Railway Traffic Operation” which is conducted by Division of Visual Information and Interaction Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University. In this study, there is a part called train Driver Advisory System mainly focuses on human factors/usability. A project implemented a graphical prototype of a train driver advisory system for evaluation purposes. The difference between this DAS system with other DAS systems is to achieve human factors/usability better and support train drivers better.
In this thesis report, important theoretical aspects about human-machine interface design related with the train DAS graphic user-interface (GUI) design and the development methodology used in this project were described. All components of this train Driver Advisory System were described and requirements were analysed. The train DAS development process was described, especially the system architecture and how the system was implemented.
