Abstract

In this paper, we present an optimized 3D stereoscopic display based on parallax barriers for a driving simulator. The overall purpose of the simulator is to enable user studies in a reproducible environment under controlled conditions to test and evaluate advanced driver assistance systems. Our contribution and the focus of this article is a visualization based on parallax barriers with (I) a-priori optimized barrier patterns and (II) an iterative calibration algorithm to further reduce visualization errors introduced by production inaccuracies. The result is an optimized 3D stereoscopic display perfectly integrated into its environment such that a single user in the simulator environment sees a stereoscopic image without having to wear specialized eye-wear.
