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.
