Continental’s fight against driver distraction

During his interview at Car HMI Europe, Continental Project Engineer Zack Bolton questioned the assumption that hands-free mobile use whilst driving is less distracting than handheld cell phone use. He stated there is no data or evidence proving the advantage of hands-free mobile use. Safety systems and their machine interfaces are still too simplistic; for better HMI with less distractions the driver intention should be taken into account, too.
