Driver information systems (Dsfpd)

Definition
Information systems in vehicles that display vehicle speed, fluid levels, fluid temperatures, and some basic diagnostic information (warnings, panel lamps). Optional driver information systems offer fuel economy information, compass heading, outside temperature and other comfort- or convenience-related items. Very few provide information in regard to the real performance of the vehicle, its motion in 3-dimensional space, or the driver's skill and performance.
