This study investigated effect of perception-compatibility, learning-factor, and symbol-carrier on single LED symbol system recognizing. A total of 48 subjects aged between 19 to 53(M=28.6, SD=9.49) participated. Subjects were asked to interpret target LED symbols and match with product status. A 2 (perception-compatibility) × 2 (learning-factor) × 2 (symbol-carrier) mixed design was used in this study. Analysis showed that the effect of perception-compatibility on recognizing accuracy was significant. However, no significant effects on accuracy were associated with learning-factor and symbol-carrier. The result showed that perception-compatibility play an important role in recognizing symbols.
