New knowledge on phone handling on driving based field studies

The article Field research methods to study interactional adaptation of drivers using mobile phones in traffic [PDF], written by Mattias Esbjörnsson, Oskar Juhlin and Alexandra Weilenmann, has been accepted, pending minor revisions, to a special issue of the International Journal of Human Computer Interaction on “In-Use, In-Situ: Extending Field Research Methods.” The article presents ethnographic data which reveals ways in which drivers adapt phone handling to traffic, and vice versa. Based on such data, the authors discuss the validity of experimental studies of mobile phone use in traffic
