In-Vehicle Spatial Auditory Displays: Reducing cognitive load and improving reaction times
More InfoLess Info
Spatial Auditory Displays (SADs) can help provide both a more agreeable and a safer driving experience. Among their benefits are reduction of driver reaction times, errors and cognitive load. By providing drivers with auditory clues that associate different activities and instructions with specific locations, spatial auditory displays help drivers "intuitively" identify speakers, the sources of instructions, and even the location and relative trajectory and velocity of danger.
