Human Factors in Driving and Automotive Telematics (Part 1 of 2)
(Session Code: B302)

Room 116 B  8:00 a.m.

As information and entertainment to and from the vehicle (Telematics) become more prolific it is critical to increase our understanding of how the driver understands and uses Telematics functions. Equally critical is how those functions impact the driver. This session will address those issues.
