HUMAN FACTOR CONSIDERATIONS OF MOTORIST NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS. IN: CONFERENCE RECORD OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST VEHICLE NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1989

In-vehicle systems have the potential for ameliorating problems associated with navigation and operations including delay, excess fuel consumption, congestion, and increased safety risk. A proliferation of vehicle-based systems, however, has resulted in a lack of standardization, and a diversity of functions. User interfaces are crucial to system effectiveness. Therefore, while display and control configurations will ultimately be determined by the marketplace, it is important that human factors be addressed, and guidelines developed. This will assure standardization and display and control optimization. Human factors have been considered in terms of seven questions: "Why?', "What?", "When?', "Where?", "How?', "Who?", and "Can?".
