Texting, making calls, and other interaction with in-vehicle information and communication systems while driving is a serious source of driver distraction and increases the risk of traffic accidents. Technology-caused driver distraction is a global problem and has its stake in the more than 1.2 million people dying in road crashes each year. This ITU-T Technology Watch Report provides an overview of technology-caused driver distraction and surveys standards, guidelines and initiatives aiming at making the use of in-vehicle information and communication systems less distracting.

Texting, making calls, and other interaction with in-vehicle information and communication systems while driv-ing is a serious source of driver distraction and increases the risk of traffic accidents. Technology-caused driverdistraction is a global problem and has its stake in the more than 1.2 million people dying in road crashes eachyear. This ITU-T Technology Watch Report provides an overview of technology-caused driver distraction and sur-veys standards, guidelines and initiatives aiming at making the use of in-vehicle information and communica-tionsystems less distracting.
 
 The rapid change of the telecommunication/information and communication technologies (ICT)environment requires related technology foresight and immediate action in order to propose possibleITU-T standardization activities as early as possible.
ITU-T Technology Watch
surveys the ICT landscape to capture new topics for standardization activities.Technology Watch Reports assess new technologies with regard to existing standards inside and outsideITU-T and their likely impact on future standardization.
