The automation of automobiles will change driver behavior, as the unconscious region stressed by the conscious region. Driving operation is considered to be done unconsciously, as human biological signals start 0.3 seconds before a decision is made. It is thought that driving operation changes when the unconscious region is pressured. In this paper, we set mental calculations as a dual task technique of a non-driving task for drivers, and verified the changing of driver operations by this load pressure on a driver's consciousness region.
