This document provides information about a 2012 workshop on cognitive load estimation and management for both driving and interactions with in-vehicle systems, as well as guidance on problems, goals, hypotheses, and approaches for future research on this topic.
This document provides information on CLW 2012, a workshop on cognitive load estimation and management for both driving and interactions with in-vehicle systems. The workshop also aims to provide guidance on problems, goals, hypotheses, and approaches for future research about this topic. It addresses the problem that in-vehicle human-machine interaction (HMI) can interfere with the primary task of driving, and addresses the central question in designing HMI for in-vehicle devices, of how the HMI will impact a driver’s cognitive load. CLW 2012’s works with the theoretical premise of the Yerkes-Dodson Law, which can be understood as a pivotal concept in the detection and management of cognitive load. This document lays out the workshop’s four goals: explore the concept of cognitive load; explore issues in cognitive load estimation; explore issues in cognitive load management; and explore paths for future research and development. The document informs of the workshop’s organization and activities, events and sessions during the workshop, and actions for after the workshop
