Abstract: This paper describes an Artificial Intelligence-based approach to the design of a driver information unit (DIU). The system should be able to provide the driver with accurate, reliable, necessary and sufficient, and timely support on the basis of unreliable and limited input information. Moreover, the system is to function in a development environment under the assumption of incrementality. In the design of the DIU we build on a three-layered architecture suitable for implementing real-time systems with a considerable amount of autonomy and intelligence. We show how the support tools developed in that architectural framework facilitate rapid development and incremental changes of the DIU. The current version of the DIU implements a fixed reflexive behaviour, but the architecture readily allows more elaborate reasoning, planning and prediction tasks (in the artificial intelligence meaning of the terms) to be added.
