Abstract

Mobile radios have a manufacturer-provided manual user interface that allows changing radio channels using buttons. There is also a display on the faceplate of the radio that is used to visually verify channel selection. The objective of this study was to compare the influence of the manual user interface and the Project54 speech user interface (SUI) on drivers’ performance while interacting with a mobile radio. In experiments conducted with a driving simulator we found that operating the manual user interface degraded driving performance significantly, while using the SUI did not.

Comparing the Influence of Two User Interfaces for Mobile Radios on Driving Performance
