These days, the main focus in developing telematics systems is to promote safety by decreasing the workload of the driver. To achieve this goal, simplification of the interface as well as the resolution of GUI interaction problems must be worked on. For this research, objective and quantitative assessments are provided in the early steps of building the haptic interface model. The purpose of this research is to create an evaluation model that uses the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method to fulfill user requirements. This research developed an AHP evaluation model that can present recommendations, as well as the degree of importance, for haptic interface design with quantitative assessments of the prototype by finding out the absolute and relative importance for evaluation groups and factors in early design levels using AHP.
