Abstract

In-vehicle information systems (IVIS) are multimodal presentation systems that are designed to assist drivers. The challenge of IVIS information presentation is to deliver information effectively while minimizing the interference with driving. Modality is a presentation factor that has been known to influence the performance of IVIS. In this paper, we attempt to provide an overview on the advantages and disadvantages of three types of modalities (visual, auditory and tactile) when used in the IVIS context, as well as the benefit and cost of combining multiple modalities. Findings presented in this work can be used as guidelines when making design choices in a specified system context.
