Development of advanced, electronic automotive equipment as part of intelligent vehicle highway systems (IVHS) is a cause for concern. These new electronic systems may fundamentally change the driving task as we know it, making current display technology obsolete. As an example, a possible change in utility of a speedometer is discussed. In addition to changes in driving, new controls and displays associated with IVHS will increase the amount of information available to be processed by drivers, perhaps leading to overload. Overload, however, is a multidimensional construct and is not simply related to the amount of information presented. This paper attempts to address these issues and presents a model for the development of IVHS controls and displays based on human factors, ergonomic methodology. The model requires the use of task analysis to match human capabilities to the demands of using the new automotive systems.
