AAA Finds that Apple and Android Program are Less Distracting than Auto Builtin Systems
July 9, 2018
I guess carmakers did not do enough research when trying to develop their infotainment built in systems. AAA recently did a study where they found that Apple (Carplay) and Android systems distract drivers less than the built in systems.
"What we've been studying for the last three or four years is the explosion to technology in the vehicle — hundreds of buttons, touch screens, gesture controls, heads-up displays, voice commands," said David Strayer, the author of the study. "Our concern is that in many cases the driver will assume that if it's put in the vehicle, and it's enabled to be used while the vehicle's in motion, then it must be safe. That's just simply not true."
In sum, the study found that Apple and Android users took over seconds from their reaction time which can be crucial when reacting to a potential car accident.
Sending text messages while driving is illegal in all but three states (Montana, Arizona, Missouri). Calling someone on a handheld cellphone while driving is banned in 15 states. And 38 states ban cell use by younger drivers.
AAA's own survey earlier this year found that 58 percent of drivers thought people talking on their cellphones were a "very serious threat" to their safety and 78 percent said texting was a significant danger, but almost half of them admitted to making calls and 35 percent said they had sent a text or email.
