The paper reports on the work done in the initial phases of the European Information Society and Technology (IST) Project Comunicar. Eleven partners cooperate in the project, including leading European car industry suppliers and universities. Comunicar has the ambitious goal of designing a multimodal driver-vehicle interface that integrates a large number of state of the art services and devices. The introduction of such systems puts forward a number of problems related to potential interference with the primary task of driving, ease of use, and acceptance for end users. The approach adopted here was to define the initial specifications for the design of multimodal interaction compliant with the major findings stemming from the human Factors research tradition.
