Paper Title
Instrument Cluster Configuration Using GUI Based On VB.Net

The purpose of the project is to design and develop a GUI (graphical user interface) based Driver information system. Instrument clusters are the traditional readout meters available in the dashboard of cars and motorbikes. In regard of the conventional meters that are in existence, the analog meters have disadvantages in lack of storage capability and accuracy whereas digital meters have display problems in dim light areas. In order to overcome these disadvantages the instrument clusters can be controlled and made user friendly with the help of GUI. Graphical User Interface allows the drivers to interact with instrument clusters using images rather than text commands and command linearguments. The goal is to enhance the efficiency and ease of use for the underlying logical design. These actions are usually performed through direct manipulation of the graphical elements. This can be implemented in instrument clusters with the help of .NET software along with the assistance of MS access as back end tool.
