automotive ux – How to present performance data in vehicles

I’m looking for guidelines on how to best present performance data in vehicles. I’m working in a project where we display real time driver performance data, on a screen installed next to the instrument cluster, in buses and trucks. I think that there must be a lot of knowledge and guidelines out there, about for example, instrument cluster design, which can be applicable here. For example, I just learned that a needle pointing up means that everything is ok. I’m also grateful for links to resources on the Internet, book titles, etc.
