Performance Metrics for Assessing Driver Distraction : The Quest for Improved Road Safety Paperback / softback

Edited by Gary L. Rupp

Part of the Premiere Series Books series

Description

This book focuses on the study of secondary task demands imposed by in-vehicle devices on the driver while driving.

It provides a mechanism for researchers to evaluate how in-vehicle devices such as navigation systems - as well as other devices such as cell phones - affect driver distraction and impact safety. This book, which features the work presented by international experts at the 4th International Driver Metrics Workshop, in June 2008, offers a summary of the current state of driver metrics research. Edited by workshop moderator Dr. Gary L. Rupp, the book introduces vital information to support the design of in-vehicle information and communication systems (IVIS). Topics covered include: Driver object and event detection Peripheral detection tasks (PDT) Tactile-based detection tasks (TDT) Modified Sternberg method for assessing visual and cognitive load of in-vehicle tasks Modified Sternberg method for assessing peripheral detection task and lane change tests The relationship between performance metrics and crash risk Characterising driver behaviours observed in naturalist driving studies Developing metrics from lane change test studies
