Current high-tech cars can not only navigate on the center console, but also handle e-mail and facebook and manage a song selection of several thousand tracks. Web apps and smartphone interface complete the distraction. We take a look at solutions to bring it all together with the "primary driving task" in an accident-free denominator.
Hanover, 26. July 2012 – the road traffic paradox: cars can theoretically drive faster than ever today, but in practice they drive slower and slower.

In japan, car buyers therefore demand that the center console displays tv and dvds. In the land of perpetual congestion china, infotainment gimmicks dominate buyers’ wish lists – at walking speed, engine or chassis qualities are irrelevant. U.S. Customers now not only want to eat breakfast in their cars, but also start their office day while commuting. And even in germany, infotainment is evolving from being perceived as a nice garnish to an important purchase criterion.
