Performance Driver Information Systems, Enhancing the Fun-to-Drive Equation 2002-21-0041

Most driver information systems offered in automobiles today display vehicle speed, fluid levels, fluid temperatures, and some basic diagnostic information (warnings, panel lamps). Optional driver information systems add to this list by offering fuel economy information, compass heading, outside temperature and other comfort and convenience related items. Very few provide information in regards to the real performance of the vehicle, its motion in 3-dimensional space, or the driver’s skill and performance. Making this information available to the driver can enhance the “fun-to-drive” aspects of driving.
