In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public comments on the following proposed collection of information: Title: Driver Distraction Measurement Research. Type of Request: New collection. OMB Clearance Number: None. Form Number: NHTSA Form 1157. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from date of approval. Summary of the Collection of Information: NHTSA proposes to collect information from the public as part of a multi-study research effort that supports the development of measurement techniques for auditory-vocal interactions involving in-vehicle and portable devices. Questions will be asked in conjunction with driving experiments involving both driving simulator and visual occlusion apparatus research tools. The research will involve driving simulator-based experiments in which participants perform specific secondary tasks while driving. The questions will be used to assess individuals’ suitability for study participation, to obtain ratings of task difficulty that can be compared to driving performance data, and to assess the incidence and severity of any discomfort stemming from driving the simulator. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) mission is to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce healthcare and other economic costs associated with motor vehicle crashes. An April 2010 program plan document titled ‘‘Overview of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Driver Distraction Program’’ announced multiple efforts to reduce the dangers associated with distracted driving. This research aims to inform the development of test procedures and criteria that could be used for voice systems. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:01 Apr 29, 2015 Jkt 235001 Respondents: We estimate that 1,650 persons will complete at least a portion of the information collection. Respondents will be licensed drivers aged 18–70 years who drive at least 3,000 miles annually, are in good health, and do not require to assistive devices to safely operate a vehicle. Estimated Number of Respondents: In support of this research, it is estimated that 1,650 individuals will complete the first set of screening questions and 1,400 will complete the second set of screening questions. Of the 1,400, it is estimated that 1,000 individuals will meet criteria for participation. From those 1,000, approximately 425 individuals will be chosen to produce a sample providing a balance of age and genders and will be scheduled for study participation. Estimated Time per Response: Completion of the screening questions is estimated to take approximately 5 minutes for the first set and 10 minutes for the second set. The Rating Scale for Mental Effort (RSME) is estimated to take 2.5 minutes per participant and the simulator sickness questionnaire is estimated to take 2 minutes per participant. Total Estimated Annual Burden: 176 hours. Frequency of Collection: The data collection described will be performed once to obtain the target number of valid test participants. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). Nathaniel Beuse, Associate Administrator for Vehicle Safety Research.
