What should of been evident to many, voice commands are just as distracting as fumbling for buttons, especially when the VC won't do just what you want it too. "Call Mom.... NO, NOT BOB!!!!!, FAHH#$%^&*!!!!"
http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2014/10/voice-controls-infotainment-deemed-overwhelming-aaa.htmlA new study undertaken by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety says that voice controls in our vehicles may be just as distracting as the buttons and knobs that they are meant to replace.
To get these results, researchers had test subjects send text messages, post social media updates and schedule appointments using hands-free technology while driving in a simulator to gauge mental strain. Those tested measured 4 points on a 5-point scale for mental strain while using Apple’s Siri hands-free system, which was deemed to be the most distracting systems according to the research.
