Driver distraction and the connected vehicle

A new Automotive World report on driver distraction and vehicle connectivity provides insight from automakers, suppliers, fleets and safety experts on the need to ensure driver attention remains on the task of driving

Special report: Driver distraction and the connected vehicle

New technology is a growing factor in driver distraction; the prevalence of smartphones and sophisticated infotainment systems increases the potential for drivers to take their eyes off the road and their minds off the task of driving.

However, drivers have always been distracted, by traffic conditions, conversations, background noise and the actions of passengers. The nature of distraction is changing, and automakers must ensure that new technology reduces rather than increases the potential for distraction.

Automotive World’s report on driver distraction and the connected vehicle explores the ways in which automakers, suppliers and fleets can accommodate new technologies whilst also ensuring that vehicles are safe not only for the vehicle occupants but also all other road users.
