G. in terms of the amount of fuel, tyre pressure), as frequent opportunities are provided to refuel or correct minor issues. On the other hand, the driver of an alternatively fuelled vehicle has additional tasks concerned with assessing the amount of fuel available, the distances this will allow him/her to travel, and deciding the charging strategy. In most countries the road infrastructure does not provide many opportunities for the owners of alternatively powered vehicles to refuel, or to refuel quickly.

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.
Indb 35 04/06/12 12:38 PM 36 4 DISCUSSION As shown above, error prevention effect of pointing was seen only in low density condition. One interpretation of this result is that difficulty of the experimental task affected the result. Therefore, because of low difficulty, the error prevention effect of eye fixation with pointing was seen in low density condition, but that was not seen in high density condition because of the high difficulty. Because there was no difference in error rate in without pointing between high density condition and low density condition, it can’t be assumed that each condition has different difficulty.
