Switching between driving and reading in autonomous vehicles

Description

This experiment takes place in a motion simulator that simulates the experience of an autonomous vehicle. Participants are required to perform a German language task on a tablet PC. Lights and sounds are presented sometimes to instruct the participant to take over driving. We are interested in how capable humans are in changing between tasks in such an environment.
