A FRAMEWORK FOR THE EVALUATION OF AUTOMOTIVE TELEMATICS SYSTEMS

Abstract

The evaluation of interfaces for in-car communication and information applications is an important and challenging task. Indeed, it is necessary not only to consider the user interaction with the interface but also to understand the effects of this interaction on driver-vehicle performances. As a result, there is a strong need of tools and approaches that allow researchers to effectively evaluate such interfaces while user is driving. To address the problem in the paper we propose a framework that has been specifically conceived for such evaluation. It is based on the integration of a suitable car simulator and an in-car system and allows us to get a high amount of data and carry out repeatable tests in a safe and controlled environment. Moreover, the proposed solution is not much expensive and quite simple to set-up.
