Abstract

In the last decade the automotive industry added digital features to their new cars, including advanced interactive infotainment system. Drivers execute several secondary tasks simultaneously besides the essential driving tasks. More complex infotainment system needs more cognitive attention causing more driver distraction. A consensus from multiple driver distraction research is that multi-tasking causes impaired performance. Although drivers know that distraction is a major reason of car accidents, they continue doing distracting activities during driving. In this paper we introduce a customized user interface instead of a standard user interface to reduce response time and hence driver distraction. While it is hard to directly measure cognitive-related distraction, events that take longer response time by the driver indicate a higher cognitive load as the user needs more time to perceive, analyze and comprehend when compared to simple events. Our hypothesis is that a reduction in the driver’s response time while using infotainment system can indicate a reduction in driver distraction.
