Citation: HANCOX, G., MORRIS, A. and RICHARDSON, J.H., 2016. Factors affecting phone engagement whilst driving- are they transferable from outside the vehicle? Presented at the European Conference on Human Centred Design for Intelligent Transport Systems (Humanist VCE), Loughborough University, 30th June- 1st July.
Abstract: Mobile phone use whilst driving can be considered to have a negative impact on driving performance; yet mobile phones have become an integrated, useful and often important part of people’s everyday lives. This study therefore investigates whether phone engagement habits and behaviours transfer from outside of the car to when behind the wheel also. It uses a semi-structured interview methodology, with Thematic Analysis, to find if there is anything unique to driving which inhibits drivers from mobile phone usage or is the car considered just another environment in which to use the phone to communicate and be entertained?
