Effects of time-gap settings of adaptive cruise control (ACC) on driving performance and subjective acceptance in a bus driving simulator
A study was conducted to investigate the effects of time-gap settings and contents of secondary tasks on a fix-based bus driving simulator on drivers- performance while reclaiming control from ACC in a car-following scenario of emergency brake by the lead vehicle. Thirty professional bus drivers...
Facilitating driver interaction with a robotic driving assistant Some insights from the literature.
Nissan has been exploring the idea of robots as driving aids, first demonstrating the PIVO robot at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show and PIVO 2 at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show. The robot consists of the top of an R2D2-like unit, with an expressive face, torso rotation, and speech output. It is positioned on...
In-vehicle video and motion sickness
This study consisted of a brief literature review of motion sickness and a paper-andpencil survey that focused on the frequency and severity of motion sickness of respondents- past experiences while viewing video in a moving vehicle. Also included in the survey were questions related to the...
Relationships among driver age, vehicle cost, and fatal nighttime crashes
The ratio of crashes in darkness to those occurring in daylight has been used to assess the relative sensitivity of certain risk factors to ambient light level. When applied in a way that maintains control over exposure level, use of dark/light ratios can be helpful in identifying crash factors...
Supplemental analysis for strategies to reduce CMV-involved crashes, fatalities and injuries in Michigan Driver records and crash involvement.
This research sought to identify differences in safety records of drivers who had undergone the training required to hold commercial drivers licenses, and to see if previous offenses and crashes in a CDL drivers record were reasonable indicators of future offenses and crashes. Crash and offense...
Development and evaluation of automotive speech interfaces: useful information from the human factors and the related literature.
Drivers often use infotainment systems in motor vehicles, such as systems for navigation, music, and phones. However, operating visual-manual interfaces for these systems can distract drivers. Speech interfaces may be less distracting. To help designing easy-to-use speech interfaces, this paper...
Driving avoidance by older adults : is it always self-regulation?
Self-regulation shows promise as a means by which older adults can continue to drive at some level without having to stop altogether. Self-regulation is generally described as the process of modifying or adjusting one's driving patterns by driving less or intentionally avoiding driving...
The effect on teenage risky driving of feedback from a safety monitoring system: A randomized controlled trial.
Teenage risky driving may be due to teenagers not knowing what is risky, preferring risk, or the lack of consequences. Elevated gravitational-force (g-force) events, caused mainly by hard braking and sharp turns, provide a valid measure of risky driving and are the target of interventions using...
Emergency department-based brief intervention to reduce risky driving and hazardous/harmful drinking in young adults: A randomized controlled trial.
Background: Risky driving and hazardous drinking are associated with signi�cant human and economic costs. Brief interventions for more than one risky behavior have the potential to reduce healthcompromising behaviors in populations with multiple risk-taking behaviors such as young adults....
