Two long-term goals of our study has been to develop a standardized communication interface between the mobile device and other onboard systems and to create a parametrical, scaleable user interface, both with voice and graphical user input/output. This chapter describes the main requirements, principles, and aspects of a voice/graphical user interface and of a Bluetooth based communication interface. Requirements and limitations for the implementation of speech synthesis on mobile devices will also be introduced. An SMS-reader application will be presented as a sample application of a mobile device on a vehicle.
