Verbal and Cognitive Distractors in Driving Performance While Using Hands-Free Phones

The results showed that use of a hands-free cellular phone involving verbal and cognitive distractions impaired driving performance and skill.

Driver Performance While Using A Cellular Telephone Interface To A Traveler Information System

It appeared that drivers were less aware of their surroundings when interacting with the 511 traveler information system while using a cellular phone and driving, and this reduction in situation awareness could largely explain the increased braking responses and higher number of collisions.

The Effects of Divided Attention and Cognitive Distraction on Driver’s Performance Among People Aged over 65

Introduction: Driving is a complex task engaging high level of cognitive and motor processes. Adding to this complexity, engagement in cognitive secondary tasks such as talking with other passengers,

Analysis of the literature: the use of mobile phones while driving

The objectives of this report were to examine the effects of hands-free and hand-held mobile phone use on driving performance and to examine the relative effects of hands-free versus hand-held mobile

Conversing with mobile phone while driving and its impact on driving behavior

The results of this pilot study will form the design of a large experimental study on 50 professional and 50 amateur drivers, which has been scheduled to be carried out in order to produce up-to-date knowledge on the involvement of the human factor in the phenomenon of road traffic crashes.

THE IMPACT OF COGNITIVE DISTRACTION ON DRIVER VISUAL BEHAVIOUR AND VEHICLE CONTROL

Driver distraction and inattention are important driving safety issues. As the use of in-vehicle technologies becomes more popular, there is concern about a concomitant increase in driver distraction

THE IMPACT OF INTERNAL DISTRACTION ON DRIVER VISUAL BEHAVIOR

Driver distraction can arise from sources internal as well as external to the driver. In this paper we describe a study (in progress) designed to examine the influence of internal distraction,

Measuring Driver Visual Distraction with a Peripheral Detection Task

In order to design safe vehicles it is important to be able to evaluate in-vehicle systems to determine how distracting they are for people to use while driving. The Peripheral Detection Task (PDT)

The measurement of drivers' mental workload

Driving a vehicle may seem to be a fairly simple task. After some initial training many people are able to handle a car safely. Nevertheless, accidents do occur and the majority of these accidents

PERIPHERAL DETECTION RATES IN DRIVERS

The theory of perceptual narrowing suggests that as the level of demand increases at the fovea, there will be a corresponding decrease in the visual area around the fovea from which peripheral

The study reviews the fields of traffic safety, driver behavior, and psychology with respect to driver inattention. Volume I discusses basic concepts, theories, measurement techniques, and research

Vision, Visibility, and Perception in Driving

It is concluded that ‘expectancy’, based on experience in both the long and the short term, has a profound influence on driver perception and assessment of risk.

Driver Behavioral Adaptation to Collision Warning and Avoidance Information

This study tested the behavioral impact of using an advanced driver support system that integrated forward collision avoidance, route knowledge (curves and speed), and lane support.
