In this paper is presented the opportunity to consider the user's Well-being in an automotive context directly from the early phases of the design process by proposing new kinds of tools and methods. After establishing a definition of Well-being, an evaluation method is suggested enabling the car designers to assess how a new system would impact the driver's Well-being. More precisely, a first experiment studying the possibility to use physiological measures in order to quantify the driver's Well-being is presented.
