Display brightness, color uniformity, contrast, and defects are most accurately assessed using the same visual sensitivity as the method used to define display quality. The human eye is the ultimate determinant of quality in automotive displays, and its ability to discern light, color, and contrast differences is imperative to display operation and perceived quality of the vehicle brand. In display design and manufacture, however, human inspection is one of the least efficient, least consistent, and least quantifiable methods for quality analysis Full Whitepaper »
