Abstract

This paper reports on a user study of simulated cell phone use in a driving simulator. The main questions we were seeking to answer were concerning the effectiveness and efficiency of the auditory interfaces in comparison to a standard visual interface. In our experiment we tested two audio interfaces; one with many spatial audio sources and one with a single source. These were compared against a visual interface. Both of the auditory interfaces were as effective as each other but they were not better than the visual interface. However users made more errors while using the visual interface than in the two audio conditions. So although both types of interface were as effective as each other the visual interface was less efficient as it distracted strongly from the primary driving task.
