As vehicles become more complex, the amount of information we are required to display increases. For example, a typical vehicle of the 1970s had 2 instruments and 9 indicators while a vehicle of the 1980s is expected to have 4 instruments and 20 indicators as well as additional service and diagnostics displays. With our present technology, we will be required to use smaller graphics, and package the displays closer together, resulting in a wide array of information displayed to the driver. Another factor affecting design of the driver's displays is the safety of his passengers. As the industry trend moves toward smaller more compact vehicles, the human factors, safety and component weight/size problems become more difficult to solve. /GMRL/
