Abstract

Assessing a driver´s mental workload during tasks that are not visualmanual is a challenging endeavor. Especially with the rapid development of speech systems, this is becoming increasingly important. Pupillometry promises to be a suitable physiological measurement method, sensitive to variations of cognitive workload. This driving simulator study shows that the pupillometry data indicate a significant increase in cognitive activity during conversation tasks regardless of the acoustic channel used.

Driver Distraction through Conversation Measured with Pupillometry

Bolton Landing, New York

Assessing a driver´s mental workload during tasks that are not visualmanual is a challenging endeavor. Especially with the rapid development of speech systems, this is becoming increasingly important. Pupillometry promises to be a suitable physiological measurement method, sensitive to variations of cognitive workload. This driving simulator study shows that the pupillometry data indicate a significant increase in cognitive activity during conversation tasks regardless of the acoustic channel used.
