The interests of the AutomotiveUI community include many scientifically exciting areas, such as human-computer interaction, human factors, signal processing, and cognitive psychology. Many studies of driver distraction have focused on cell phone use, but AutomotiveUI attendees received additional insights into the distracting effects associated with display type and presentation (visual and auditory). Visual displays are major sources of in-vehicle distractions. Bryan Reimer and his colleagues examined the role of typeface in determining how much time users spend looking at a visual display. Their findings indicate that typeface design provides a low-cost method for reducing a display's visual demand. Navigation is perhaps the oldest transportation-related application, so it is no surprise that our community is heavily engaged in improving navigation interfaces.
