The paintings programme on Human convenience and protection is an try to deal with those concerns. Its fundamental goals are the exploitation of latest wisdom and services in usability engineering by way of integrating equipment and instruments into coherent toolsets, the iteration of better human machine interface elements, demonstrating their program in perform, and broadly disseminating the implications and selling the take-up of those technologies.

Consequently, the controls for these functions should be large and within easy reach of the driver. Many other functions are used only rarely; so that their controls could be made smaller, possibly only operable by the driver while the car is stationary, or they could even be dispensed with. The objective registrations and interview results yield examples of what may be called "hidden functionality" - in this case of a car radio-cassette player. To the user the features involved remain hidden, although they are listed in the instructions for use that are supplied when the equipment is purchased or, as in the present case, made available.

20 Partnership Initiative One very successful means of transferring technology is to facilitate partnerships between those who need the technology and those who have it. Typical schemes involve SMEs working with research associates within academic institutions. This concept could be adapted so that the partnerships could be between SMEs who need usability skills and those organisations who have it, but are not able to exploit it themselves.

The first phase of the MUSiC project ended in January, 1994. During this phase, with the help of part-funding from the CEC, the important pre-competitive research and development was completed. A number of training and consultancy packages have been identified and marketed on the basis of the opportunities offered by the MUSiC product set. For instance, the VSTAR service, which is marketed jointly by ACit in Germany and the Human Factors Associates in Ireland, or the Usability Workshop series, which is offered jointly by the Human Factors Research Group in Ireland and the National Physical Laboratory in the UK.
