Car accidents are a major concern. Consequently, a lot of research is carried out on car user interfaces. For each such research, usually a special simulator or car is developed, algorithms and tools are redeveloped, and similar issues arise. We propose CarCoach, an educational car system, based on a generalized layered architecture. We present the system design, the intelligent modular architecture, its layers, including details of some of its relevant modules. Using the Chrysler 300M IT-Edition car as a platform, a prototype was implemented and initial experimentation was carried out and is reported. We demonstrate that CarCoach provides a flexible environment for car research and support of varied car applications.
