This briefly sketched scenario shows that the driver has changing needs and expectations depending on the driving situation or mode, the traffic situation, the type of trip, and his/her momentary condition. The vehicle interior in particular needs to adapt to these changing requirements to provide the right amount of data at the right time, on the appropriate channel, and to make sure that the driver is indeed capable of processing what is expected from him/her. This is enabled by the new level of connectivity and sufficient computing power of the in-vehicle servers.
