Abstract:   (55 Views)
In this paper, the main objective is ergonomics evaluation of
automobile’s dashboard to devise suitable designs based on textures and
patterns. Undoubtedly appropriated dashboards' design based on textures
might be ended to more driving safety, in which the tactile-real and visualimplied

texture of a surface should be considered. In this study, data was
gathered by in-depth observation and questionnaires. Expert volunteers
who not only used their cars frequently, but also were fairly sensitive to the
effects of visual and tactile items in dashboard design automobile’s
manufacturers. Statistical data analyzing shows improving texture in
dashboard design has a significant influence on drivers'. The need to take
repeated glimpses in order to distinguish the operation of each button will
diminish, an issue significantly decreasing accident risk.  The results show
the interaction between the product textures will be ended to users'
satisfaction and also product’s feature and performance. This study clarifies
the significance of dashboard texture, so industrial designers are expected
to work harder to make better use of textures in designing product elements.
