Third, human conduct must be understood with reference to the naturalistic setting in which it occurs. The sociologist Gusfield (1981) is a champion of ethnographies of traffic events. He has argued for close analysis of everyday activities to understand traffic behavior. My intent in raising the question of purpose and the meaning of the driving event was to focus attention on the immediate context in which the event occurs. . It concentrates on how the event emerges in interaction with others.

The development of ITS is based on the assumption that the demands of future daily life, sustained by an increase in mobility, will be secured through increasing use of private cars. As a consequence, the burdens on the transport infrastructure, which is already thinly stretched, particularly in urban areas, are multiplying. The very freedom of movement that cars have provided is now being degraded into traffic congestion. To solve these problems, a combination of new policies and information technology (Camus and Fortin 1995; Chen and Miles 1999) are capable of opening up new ways of achieving a sustainable mobility.

By doing so we hope to learn more about how spontaneous, non-hierarchical social interaction can be supported by IT. There are two reasons for providing this background to the research presented in this book. First, it underscores the importance of applying a usercentric perspective, which takes detailed studies of humans and their computer interaction seriously when designing collaborative applications. An interest in social and interactional practice, as well as in the appropriate methodological tools, is fundamental to research areas such as Computer–Human Interaction (CHI), and especially, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW).
