Google Glass and driving
« on: July 16, 2014, 02:38:29 PM »
Hi All,
I work for Westat, a consulting firm in Rockville, MD.  We are currently looking into how wearable devices are used by people in vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is funding this exploratory project, which mainly focuses on how Google Glass is used within the vehicle.

We would like to know how YOU use Google Glass while driving. What do you use Glass for while driving? How has your driving experience changed with the use of Glass? How has your use of Glass influenced your use of smartphones while driving? We hope you will share any thoughts or comments you have.

Also, if you would like to participate in an interview about your use of Glass, or a focus group (if you live in the Washington D.C. area), feel free to message me. 

Thanks,
Dan K.
Westat Transportation Group

For me driving has increased phenomenally, as a heads up display. I can keep my eyes on the road (sometimes i tilt my head down so I can see the road through the transparent display. I don't have to block my windshield with a GPS. Having a compass and clock on demand is great, not to mention having the text messages right in front of me and caller ID. The voice control is excellent for sending texts and making calls. I don't have to pull over to program an address for gps. I'm really waiting for the speedometer. having to take my eyes off the road all the time to watch speed, for safety lol, is unsafe. and it'll only be a matter of time that the speedometer will be linked to a speed database to let me know if i'm going over. I don't always see the speed limit signs, as I might be looking at the vehicles speedometer at that exact second. I definately use my smartphone less while driving with glass. and on a motorcycle it's even better.
