Embodiments of the present invention will be described below with reference to the drawings. First, the frequency of the front gaze point in the vertical direction and the horizontal direction of the vehicle driver will be described with reference to FIG.

As shown in FIG. 1, in general, it is understood that the driver frequently gazes slightly closer to the center of the vehicle from the eye point in the same height as the eye point and in the horizontal direction. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 2, the visibility of a person decreases as the distance from the gazing point increases.

Examples of experimental data supporting this are shown in FIGS. 3 and 4. FIG. FIG. 3 shows a reaction time required to read other information displayed at a position vertically separated from the gazing point while gazing at the target placed in front of the driver's eye point.

FIG. 4 shows a case where, during a track tracking operation in front of the driver's eye point, other information displayed at a certain position in the left and right directions at two different lower angles for a short period of time is displayed. This shows the percentage of correct answers. As a result, as the display location of the information moves away from the driver's point of gaze in the vertical and horizontal directions, the ability to read the information decreases due to the decrease in the visibility shown in FIG. I do.

Taking these factors into consideration, the equal visibility curve around the driver's seat in the vehicle compartment is as shown in FIG. Further, in addition to these, it is known that the visual characteristics of a person are better as the distance (viewing distance) from the eye point to the display target is longer, especially for elderly people (see FIG. 6).
