Interview: Drive distraction detection and evaluation at ŠKODA


At Skoda, we work on driver distraction
detection and evaluation. Basically, we need to detect
and measure the distraction and use this information
for the cockpit design to make it as safe as possible
for the customers. We collaborated on a research project. We studied the secondary task:
cell phone distraction in the cockpit. We performed very rapid prototyping and basically saved a lot of time
using CarMaker and the hardware
that was also provided by IPG Automotive. Basically we were able
to detect the distraction while the person was driving the vehicle So we were able to measure
how much every task distracts a person. This is very important for us
in order to compare different types
of human-machine interfaces in order to pick the one
that causes less distraction.
