Driver interface/HMI standards to minimize driver distraction/overload
This paper describes (1) the telematics distraction/overload problem, (2) what distraction and overload are and how they differ, (3) the standards and guidelines that apply to the design and evaluation of driver interfaces/human-machine interfaces (HMI) for telematics (and their strengths and...
Legibility index for examining common viewing situations a new definition using solid angle.
The legibility levels of text and graphics can be assessed using the Legibility Index, conventionally defined as the distance at which material can be read with perfect accuracy (the legibility distance) divided by the character height. The ratio equals the inverse tangent of the visual angle...
Glance strategies for using an in-vehicle touch-screen monitor
In this study, subjects in a driving simulator followed a lead vehicle that continuously changed speed while they also performed a secondary task on a touch-screen monitor that could be located at various positions within the simulator. Subjects were instructed to give priority to the following...
Validation of the static load test for event detection during hands-free conversation
To see if visual event reaction times (RTs) during handsfree conversation conditions in the Enhanced Static Load Test (ESLT) can predict RTs in similar conditions in on-road driving. Methods. Brake reaction times to random center and side light events were measured while watching a driving video,...
Automotive technology and human factors research : past, present, and future
This paper reviews the history of automotive technology development and human factors research, largely by decade, since the inception of the automobile. The human factors aspects were classified into primary driving task aspects (controls, displays, and visibility), driver workspace (seating and...
The effect of male teenage passengers on male teenage drivers : Findings from a driving simulator study
Studies have shown that teenage drivers are less attentive, more frequently exhibit risky driving behavior, and have a higher fatal crash risk in the presence of peers. The effects of direct peer pressure and conversation on young drivers have been examined. Little is known about the impact on...
