Driver information and assistance systems need to be well designed to be usable and safe from the driver distraction and inattention view point. International standards provide a mechanism for specifying and recording global consensus in developing and manufacturing safer in-vehicle information systems. The standards process involves key system manufacturers and system operators. DfT supports this work to help ensure that agreed standards take full account of consumer requirements and the policy objectives of Public Authorities. It is also recognised that international standards would generate a competitive market at international level, which could benefit the UK industry.
The Following standards have been developed and published:
- March 2002. ISO 15007-1. Measurement of Driver Visual Behaviour - Definitions & Metrics;
- July 2002. ISO 15005. Dialogue Management Principles and Compliance Procedure;

- April 2003. ISO 17287. Suitability of Transport Information & Control Systems (TICS) while Driving;
- April 2004. ISO 15006. Auditory Information Presentation.
The following Technical Standards have also been published:
- December 2001. ISO 15007-2. Measurement of Driver Visual behaviour - Equipment and Procedure;
- March 2004. ISO 16951. Criteria for Determining Priority of TICS messages Presented to Drivers.
