Wired covers AgeLab findings on using Google Glass while driving

Mon, 11/17/2014

Wired spoke with AgeLab research scientist Bruce Mehler regarding a study of university students using Google Glass while driving AgeLab's Miss Daisy driving simulator. Below is an excerpt:

"A study from MIT’s AgeLab challenges that logic by comparing how well humans drive while entering a destination address using Google Glass, voice recognition on a Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, and the same phone’s touchscreen. Turns out, hands-free driving doesn’t mean distraction-free driving. But whether Google Glass, which is largely hands-free and uses visuals projected into your line of sight), is the the best of a bad lot hasn’t been answered just yet."
