Abstract

This report examines the utility of using Event-Related Brain Potentials (ERPs) to evaluate cognitive distraction in the context of driving an automobile. Across two studies, ERPs (both P300 latency and P300 amplitude) were found to be effective in quantifying the cognitive workload experienced by drivers when they interact with in-vehicle voice-command systems.
