Such activity can only benefit the usability and safety of such systems and ensure that designers are aware of best practice.
The handbook also contains guidelines on traffic and road information, collision avoidance, and autonomous intelligent cruise control. The format of the handbook is designed to provide a succinct guideline with supporting examples where necessary, and additional information on the rationale behind the guideline, further relevant reading, and other guidelines of relevance.
The guidelines will provide a summary of current best ergonomic practice for IVHS information presentation. This will be a valuable source of information for designers (the prime target audience), for behavioral researchers, and for standards bodies (particularly ISO TC22 SC13 WG8 and ISO TC 204 WG13).
