This paper describes the early stages of research into defining daylight scenarios encountered by vehicles and outlining which are the worst-case situations with respect to display readability. The main objective of the research is to design a facility capable of recreating a wide range of daylight scenarios to perform controlled, repeatable and reproducible readability assessments within automotive vehicles. This will be achieved through sky luminance mapping, display readability assessments under real skies and investigations into daylighting technologies.\ud
