Monotype Imaging is leading the way in font and font technology research
relating to the automotive market. Below you will find Monotype Imaging and/or
U.S. government produced information on issues surrounding driver distraction.
Can certain typefaces mitigate driver distraction?
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AgeLab and the New England
University Transportation Center set out to find the answer along with Monotype
Imaging. Initial results of an exploratory study show that certain type styles
can reduce glance time – the time a driver takes away from watching the road
while interacting with in-vehicle displays.
