The current development of in-vehicle systems intended to support the driver (ACC, Navigation, GSM telephony and traffic information services) have also introduced significant challenges relating to system integration, driver workload management and the potential for driver distraction. There have been a number of responses to this challenge. The European Commission has produced a Statement of Principles on in- vehicle HMI (1) and this has been recently matched by a similar recommendation from the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers in the USA(2). However, the human factors research community has recognised that progress in this area is currently limited by a lack of agreement on the required tools, procedures and techniques.
