COMUNICAR: Subjective Mental Effort when driving with an Information Management System

A fixed-base driving simulator experiment was carried out to test an in-vehicle Information Management system which was developed within the COMUNICAR project. The subjective data on workload (RSME: Rating Scale Mental Effort) provided only weak evidence in favour of information management. Considering the special situation in this experimental set-up learning effects and (implicit) memory effects could be found as explanation for these results.
