All the Major Telematics Guidelines We've Seen
|This page attempts to list all of the major telematics guidelines that the UMTRI Human Factors Driver Interface Group has come across. We would like to thank Visteon for funding the assembly of this information. Where possible, electronic copies of the documents are available for download in Adobe PDF Format. You can download the Adobe Acrobat Reader for free from their website.|

TRL Limited (2004) A Stevens, A Quimby, A Board, T Kersloot and P Burns. Design Guidelines for Safety of In-Vehicle Information Systems
The guidelines in this document are intended to alert designers of IVIS to some legal and ergonomic issues relevant to safety.
|Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (2003 June 17; Version 3). Statement of Principles, Criteria and Verification Procedures on Driver Interactions with Advanced In-Vehicle Information and Communication Systems, Washington, D.C.: Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.|
Voluntary industry guidelines and best practices for future telematics devices including cell phones, navigation systems, and internet links.

|JAMA (Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association) Guideline for In-Vehicle Display Systems version 2.1.|
First set of detailed design guidelines for interfaces. These guidelines are voluntary in Japan but followed by all OEMs and sometimes by aftermarket suppliers, but some aspects are particular to Japan.
|Society of Automotive Engineers (2004, February 12), SAE Recommended Practice Navigation and Route Guidance Function Accessibility While Driving (SAE 2364), February 12, 2004, Warrendale,PA: Society of Automotive Engineers.|
"15-Second Total Task Rule," specifies maximum allowable task time for navigation system tasks performed while driving when using visual displays and manual controls.
|Society of Automotive Engineers (April 2002 revision), SAE Recommended Practice Calculation of the Time to Complete In-Vehicle Navigation and Route Guidance Tasks (SAE J2365), Warrendale,PA: Society of Automotive Engineers.|
Calculation procedure used to estimate total task time (and compliance with SAE J2364).
