Abstract

Assessing the driver's cognitive load has become an increasing research interest. Methods described in literature fall into three categories: self-assessment, physiological measures, and performance-based measures. We claim that cognitive load can also be deducted by environmental factors, such as visual complexity of the context or driving speed. This paper describes an experiment aimed at backing this claim and its first results.
