Is Siri highly distracting for drivers while drivers?
This study was conducted by the University of Utah which then criticized the security of using Siri while a user is driving. Researchers have tested the 6 speech-recognition systems and they found that Siri was the worst to cause driver distraction. The study conducted connected drivers to heart-rate monitors and other tools meant to calculate the degree of stress experienced by drivers while doing a series of voice-command tasks.
Each of the 6 speech-recognition systems will be given a distraction rating from 1 to 5 where 1 is the best and 5 is the worst. Last month, WSJ reported that Siri had the worst score which received a distraction rating of 4.
