Driving is a multi-tasking activity. High cognitive ability is needed to perform different tasks simultaneously. Once the number of tasks or their complexity is increased, multi-tasking is not possible due to the limited cognitive resources. In this case, instead of having multiple tasks proceeding in parallel, they interrupt each other which sometimes cause disruption. In this paper, we present an approach for supporting the user by providing peripheral cues before and after task switch, so he can be reminded on the primary task and resume it.
