OBJECTIVE The objective was to establish a systematic framework for measuring and understanding cognitive distraction in the automobile. BACKGROUND Driver distraction from secondary in-vehicle activities is increasingly recognized as a significant source of injuries and fatalities on the roadway. METHOD Across three studies, participants completed eight(More)
This research examined the impact of in-vehicle information system (IVIS) interactions on the driver's cognitive workload; 257 subjects participated in a weeklong evaluation of the IVIS interaction in one of ten different model-year 2015 automobiles. After an initial assessment of the cognitive workload associated with using the IVIS, participants took the(More)
This report examines the utility of using Event-Related Brain Potentials (ERPs) to evaluate cognitive distraction in the context of driving an automobile. Across two studies, ERPs (both P300 latency and P300 amplitude) were found to be effective in quantifying the cognitive workload experienced by drivers when they interact with in-vehicle voice-command(More)
