Based on research of existing design guidelines for HMI as well as interviews with experts, a checklist was developed with which HMI in the vehicle can be evaluated regarding their potential for distraction.
- integrates existing design recommendations, especially Visual-manual Driver Distraction Guidelines for In-Vehicle Electronic Devices (NHTSA), with focus on visual-manual distraction.
- evaluates hardware and function separately and thus also covers multifunctional touch displays
- takes into account the importance of the function for the driving task: the more important the function, the stricter the requirements.
- is easy to use by experts in the field of human-machine design.
