In the past years we have seen overwhelming information abundance in the automotive domain. Numerous advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) and in-vehicle information systems (IVIS) are introduced even in middle-sized class cars. In the future, new technologies based on Vehicle-2-X Communication (V2X) open a wide range of safety, traffic efficiency and infotainment applications. In order to ensure driving safety, user-friendly information presentation and interaction are inalienable for automotive applications. However, conflicts between numerous applications running in parallel will inevitably occur: On the one hand, there exist spatial and technical constraints at a driver's workplace. On the other hand, a driver has limited cognitive resources to spare for additional information perception. This paper elaborates on a generic Automotive HMI concept, which provides a coordination layer for independent applications. The implementation was applied to a field operational test for V2X providing a suitable test-bed for evaluation in real traffic scenarios with over 30 applications.
