Large displays in automotive design

Abstract

The ability to display and interact with large-scale representations of vehicles has always been a fundamental requirement of the automotive design industry. This requirement has traditionally manifested itself in a variety of media, including full-scale blueprints, tape drawings, and 3D clay models.

More recently, automotive design studios have begun to explore the use of large-scale digital displays in their design workflow. Often, the applications of these displays have direct analogues with traditional techniques; in other cases, new applications are evolving that use these displays to visualize and interact with design content in new ways. An interesting attribute of this evolution is that—unlike the desktop computer with its “one size fits all” universality—the size, resolution, and level of interactivity of these large displays and their applications vary depending on the physical and social settings of the task at hand.

Large Displays

Large wall-sized displays are becoming for affordable and widespread throughout the design, education, business, and entertainment industries. Such displays can be used for highly technical visualization work such as scientific visualization of a large data set, process control, or technical design. At Autodesk Research, we are investigating these types of applications and exploring design solutions to the unique interaction challenges which large wall-sized display configurations present.
