In this study we have tried to balance these self generated comments with the experiences of users in more controlled trials. The results from all groups agree. However, the self selection and entry requirements to the studies have meant a significant bias in the respondents – who are drawn from a group who are interested in sustainability, automobiles and new technology, and from high socio economic groups. indb 26 04/06/12 12:38 PM 27 ecological validity associated with field trials, and have led to the production of recommendations which will lead into the next generation of HMI.

61% of the participants trusted the feedback; others gave examples of times when it had not corresponded with the distance that had been covered. For low carbon vehicles, the range is affected by factors such as outside temperature and road conditions, not merely the distance travelled. This may make the feedback about range appear to be unreliable. Even before commencing the trial, 54% of participants cited outside temperature as a factor that they thought would reduce range as being a factor that would reduce the range.

Upper Saddle River, NJ, Pearson Prentice Hall. uk 2 Formerly Warwick Manufacturing Group, Warwick University, |UK Now, Human Machine Interface, Accommodation and Usability, Jaguar Land Rover. com ABSTRACT Low carbon vehicles offer a means of reducing carbon emissions and thereby helping sustainability. However, their rapid introduction, accompanied by new IT capabilities (for example in wireless and sensor technology and cloud computing) has meant that there has been little opportunity to fully consider the nature of the eco-driving task, the added demands it places on drivers, the HMI requirements and the development of a road infrastructure that can support anxiety free driving.
