Keywords:Alarm systems, Attenuation, Computer program listings, Human engineering, Vehicular warning sound
AbstractA study on threshold measurements for a vehicular warning sound in the presence of a single word and a narrative text is investigated. There are four basic kinds of distractions, which can occur during driving. These include: visual distractions; auditory distractions; biochemical distractions; and cognitive distractions. The results suggest that average thresholds are lower for the attended condition than for the non-attended conditions.
