Andrew Thompson and Jan Stojaspal report on how situation awareness can make for a more personalized, less distracting human-machine interface (HMI).
An estimated 421,000 people were injured in car crashes involving a distracted driver in the United States in 2012. Texting while driving made an accident 23 times more likely to happen. And 21% of 15- to 19-year-old drivers involved in a fatal car crash were distracted by the use of a cell phone.
