Abstract

We carried out experiments to evaluate the readability of e-paper devices using different systems. In the experiments, we conducted subjective evaluations under staged illuminance conditions. This study found that different age groups showed differences in reading e-paper devices with a built-in light under different conditions of illuminance.
