Zonal adaptive workload management systems: Limiting secondary tasks while driving
Paper in proceedings, 2008
This paper looks at automated systems which manage drivers' access to secondary tasks while driving vehicles. Alternative control algorithms for such systems are identified and discussed. We propose a new approach to managing workload - zonal systems - based on vehicle location and other external parameters. Zonal systems are compared and contrasted to systems which operate based on the monitoring of driving parameters. The advantages and disadvantages of each are discussed and a formula proposed for a control algorithm for zonal systems.
