This chapter pulls together the research findings, experiences and discussion topics documented by our book contributors to provide a synthesis of what is known and areas in which there is consensus in our understanding of driver acceptance of in-vehicle technology. We identify the perspectives of researchers, product designers and government policymakers and discuss how knowledge of acceptance of technology from related fields can be relevant to the in-vehicle environment. Finally, we try to identify the main knowledge gaps in the field and make recommendations concerning topics and methods for future research.
