The environmental and financial costs of road transport are a key issue for governments, car manufacturers and consumers. Alongside these issues remain longstanding concerns about road safety. The ‘Foot-LITE’ project is aimed at designing a ‘smart’ driving advisor to improve safe and eco-driving behaviours. This paper presents part of the human-centred design process to devise an in-car human-machine interface which will facilitate the desired behaviours while avoiding negative consequences of distraction. Two rapid prototyping studies are presented, and the results of feedback from potential users as well as subject matter experts are discussed with respect to implications for the future interface design.
