New interaction technologies enable alternatives to the traditional, mostly visual-manual, modalities. A user interface that combines traditional and new modalities may be both safer and more attractive to customers. The aim is to explore the potential benefits of different multimodal HMI concepts for current and future vehicle functionality in terms of safety, customer satisfaction and competitiveness. The knowledge gained in this project will be applied in coming development of new generations of cockpit HMI that enables the driver to: perform complex secondary tasks with minimal visual distraction and a high level of user acceptance; enable an intuitive and user friendly user interface for emerging functions, like autonomous driving and advanced active safety functions.
