The new world of immersive in-vehicle entertainment has emerged as a space for business opportunities by many in the automotive industry. It has also sparked concerns regarding the safety of all this new technology.
With those worries in mind, perhaps highlighted by Tesla's scrap with federal regulators over gaming, contributor Marcus Amick spoke with Highway Loss Data Institute Senior Vice President Matt Moore.
Moore, 51, offered perspective on the expanding scope of in-vehicle features and the technology driving the sector. Here are edited excerpts.
Q: As a safety advocate, what is your biggest concern as we move into the new era of in-vehicle entertainment?
A: We now have a lot of vehicles with a lot of big screens, and those screens could be used for things that aren't so safety positive. I don't know that we're paying enough attention to these systems and how they might impact what the driver is doing in the vehicle.
