David Strayer conducted a research study for the American Automobile Association that concludes that speech-based technologies in cars can overload driver’s attention and impair driving ability. David’s study measured brainwaves, eye movement and other metrics to assess what happens to drivers’ mental workload when they do multiple tasks at once. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety report was published June 12, 2013. David’s research received massive media coverage.
