Dupa ce Apple a anuntat noua tehnologie CarPlay care deschide drumul pentru apeluri hands-free mai usoare, mesaje text si navigatie in timp ce conduci, experti in siguranta auto si-au aratat ingrijorarea in privinta rolului pe care il va avea aceasta tehnologie in distragerea atentiei de la condus.

“The idea that people want to be on their phones, and therefore let’s give them a way to do that — that’s not putting safety first, that’s putting convenience and the desire to be in touch first,” said Bruce Hamilton, manager of research and communications at the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.”

Siri poate permite interactiunea “hands and eyes free” cu telefonul, dar expertii sutin ca tot contribuie la o “distragere cognitiva” care muta atentia soferului de la condus la telefon. Studii recente au aratat cum posibilitatea Siri de a transforma mesajele vocale in mesaje scrise reprezinta un risk major si chiar poate dubla timpul de reactie al soferului.

Apple spune este constienta de ingrijorarile legate de distragerea atentiei soferului prin aceste sisteme si sustine ca de fapt Siri minimizeaza distragerea atentiei conducatorului auto, permitand soferilor sa fie cu ochii la drum.

“CarPlay has been designed from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing. “iPhone users always want their content at their fingertips and CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimized distraction.”
