All automotive system design must make driver safety its first priority. Device manufacturers need to find a delicate balance between fulfilling customer desires and creating driver distraction.
New laws entailing new technology, such as those requiring hands-free calling, have been implemented in some countries to minimize driver distraction, and similar new technologies will become the standard in the future. Next-generation automotive software must be able to prioritize information and present it in the least distracting way, while also addressing the need to upgrade throughout the entire vehicle life cycle to stay relevant.
