1. A vehicle, comprising:

  • a camera to monitor an interior of the vehicle;

    a microprocessor; and

    a computer readable medium coupled to the microprocessor and comprising instructions stored thereon that cause the microprocessor to;

    render a first presentation of selected information on a display device of the vehicle, the selected information in the first presentation including a certain item in a first location on the display device;

    identify, from output of the camera, a temporary condition including a counted number of hand motions of an operator of the vehicle toward the certain item in the first presentation;

    determine a priority level associated with the certain item, a magnitude of the priority level being related to a level of occupant safety;

    automatically determine, when the priority level exceeds a threshold priority level and when the counted number of hand motions exceeds a threshold count of hand motions, to alter the first presentation of the selected information currently displayed by the display device of the vehicle to a different second presentation of the selected information to be displayed by the display device, the second presentation being associated with a higher degree of occupant safety than the first presentation and including at least the certain item of the selected information in a second location on the display device that is closer to the operator compared to the first location;

    automatically render, in response to the determination to alter the first presentation to the second presentation, the second presentation to the display device of the vehicle to replace the display of the first presentation; and

    upon occurrence of a selected triggering event associated with the identified temporary condition, automatically re-render the first presentation to the display device of the vehicle to replace the second presentation so that the certain item of information returns to the first location on the display device.
