Samenvatting Portable music players such as Apple’s iPod have become ubiquitous in many environments, but one environment in particular has elicited new safety concerns and challenges – in-vehicle use while driving. The authors present the first study of portable music-player interaction while driving, examining the effects of iPod interaction by drivers navigating a typical roadway in a driving simulator. Results showed that selecting media on the iPod had a significant effect on driver performance as measured by lateral deviation from lane center; the effect was comparable to previously reported effects of dialing a cellular phone. In addition, selecting media and watching videos had a significant effect on carfollowing speed, resulting in speed reductions that presumably compensated for impaired lateral performance. Given that iPod interaction has become increasingly common while driving, these results serve as a first step toward understanding the potential effects of portable musicplayer interaction on driver behavior and performance.
