many sub tasks and inputs


Senior Member

Can someone help me to understand what "inputs" may mean in this sentence? Thank you!

Driving is a complex task with many subtasks and inputs, as well as the potential for uncertain environments and unlikely events.

    There are many things you need to keep track of when driving (presence of pedestrians, gear selection, awareness of the state of the road, traffic lights etc etc). Each of them "puts information into your brain", the way you might put information into a computer - they are "inputs".
