A peripheral display for agricultural guidance systems is being designed and evaluated. Most current GPS-based guidance systems use a lightbar to indicate tracking error. Usually, the lightbar requires the operator to use central vision to obtain guidance information. A peripheral lightbar will reduce the need for an operator to change focus between the lightbar and the surroundings while driving. The peripheral design will be compared to the regular design in a simulator on the basis of mental workload.
