This work addresses the fundamental problem of distinguishing between a driver and passenger using a mobile phone, which is the critical input to enable numerous safety and interface enhancements. Our detection system leverages the existing car stereo infrastructure, in particular the speakers and Bluetooth network. Our acoustic approach has the phone send a series of customized high frequency beeps via the car stereo. The beeps are spaced in time across the left, right, and if available, front… 
Recognizing Driver Talking Direction in Running Vehicles with a Smartphone
TLDR
The key novelty of the scheme is the proposition of channel fingerprint which leverages the heavy multipath effects in the harsh in-vehicle environment and cancels the variability of human voice, both of which combine to invalidate traditional TDoA, DoA and fingerprint based sound source localization approaches.
Sensing Driver Phone Use with Acoustic Ranging through Car Speakers
This work addresses the fundamental problem of distinguishing between a driver and passenger using a mobile phone, which is the critical input to enable numerous safety and interface enhancements.
Detecting driver phone calls in a moving vehicle based on voice features
TLDR
This paper develops a client-server based system that can recognize the driver's voice from the collected audio data and can determine whether the driver is participating in the current phone call or not, and develops a strategy that takes into account the complicated in-vehicle environment.
Eyes on the Road: Detecting Phone Usage by Drivers Using On-Device Cameras
TLDR
A lightweight, software-only solution that uses the phone's camera to observe the car's interior geometry to distinguish phone position and orientation and can enable smartphones toactively adapt to the user's context in the car and and substantially reduce distracted driving incidents.
