From 1978 to 1981, the Research Department of Volkswagen constructed and tested the Research Car Auto 2000 sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology. This car is equipped with a fully electronic driver information system (DIS). The system consists of some microcomputers, a liquid crystal display, centralized controls and data input for various functions, and a synthesized voice output system. It controls and receives data from a radio set and a route guidance system (ALI), and exchanges data with the electronic engine control (EEC).
