Although not everyone in your car may agree (your kids, for example), driving is the most important activity while being enclosed in the stylish, complex products that define our personal transportation. However, the driver is tempted now with more controls, features, displays and options that he or she can normally and safely handle. The task is made even more difficult by the way some of these features and controls are designed. The famous tag “built around the driver” is not always obvious and I found design examples that definitely could be improved. Of course, money, cost, expenses are the first words that will be brought in support of some unexpected solutions, but I still believe that a (very) good design is possible and, ultimately, marketable.
The subjects under this category will be added in time, as I add material for relevant criticism.
