Nissan named 3 reasons to abandon vertical tablets in cars

April 3, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Nissan voiced the benefits of horizontal displays, which should give up vertical tablets. Among the arguments are safety, comfort and design.

During the movement, the motorist’s eyes move, and his gaze naturally moves from side to side – so he perceives more information if the object of observation is horizontally oriented, explained Tomomichi Uekuri, who heads the project on work on the human-machine interface (HMI). According to him, peripheral vision functions in the same way.

The second argument in support of horizontal screen layout is security. Information is displayed in a safe area, located on the line of direct gaze of the driver, closer to the road.

 An example is the layout in the interior of the conceptual model Nissan Ariya, in which important information is displayed in the area where ordinary cars have a dashboard. And information on the functioning of the multimedia system and other secondary systems are displayed on the central display. Both screens are integrated into a long curved panel, creating the feeling of a single screen.

 The third argument is about design. The Japanese company is of the opinion that the horizontal layout looks more attractive and fits better into the interior of modern cars. Tablets that are mounted vertically in the brand are considered a foreign item.
