Are they? I thought it was infotainment systems. There's quite the 
difference between those two. (At least in most cars; Teslas I think may 
be starting to blur that distinction, and to an extent that likely 
alarms some people.)

Oh, fun story... before it died entirely, my Prius's dashboard would 
sometimes fail completely. The car still *moved*, but I had no idea how 
fast I was going, or how much fuel I had left :-D. Fun times... and an 
interesting point of discussion for whether or not the dashboard is, in 
fact, "safety critical".
