Abstract:

In this study, view fields and visual elements of vehicles were investigated over the effect of driving and rehabilitation techiques were examined. The aim of the study is determining the view field problems of vehicles for safe driving and developing solutions for them. Although there are many scientific studies and technological developments on this issue but conventional mirror systems were not abondened today. In these studies only the blind spot reflections and providing better frontal vision in bad weather conditions subjects have been examined. There weren' t any study about image transferring display subject and their locations. This study will significantly and important contibution to removal of the mirrors, providing more view field for drivers and transferring image studies. This study consists of analytic models that supported resource and archival researches, survey and experimental study methods. In addition the advantages of using camera systems instead of classical mirror systems are determined. To demonstrate the importance of study, there have been done a survey study with randomly selected 100 drivers face to face in Ankara. Fitting cameras and display systems were conducted on cars for view field studies as experimental study. Study mirror the results of the removal tools that are used in the total energy, 10.6% of unwanted aerodynamic losses from 8.5% to 2.1% in earnings and was thus was revealed. Pruning reduces fuel consumption. By providing tools to expand the removal of mirrors, drivers are expected to provide the creation of an ergonomic cockpit.
