Title: USING AUGMENTED REALITY TO INCREASE A HEAVY VEHICLE OPERATOR’S SIUATIONAL AWARENESS
Subject:
Level: Basic
Description: While operating a vehicle it is important to pay close attention to things such as driving environment, other vehicles and your own vehicle. Developing a high level of situational awareness can be very beneficial for driving safety as it helps with making decisions.
The purpose of this thesis is to investigate and explore how we can use augmented reality to increase the situational awareness of a heavy vehicle operator. Our approach to solving this problem is to use the double diamond design method along with a literary investigation in order to solve the correct problem, in the best way possible. For evaluation we did user testing and questionnaires to measure mental workload and situational awareness. In this work we produced a prototype augmented reality application which we used in our tests. User feedback were almost entirely positive.
