Overview

This book has been generated by the EC-funded Dedicated Road Infrastructure for Vehicle Safety in Europe DRIVE collaborative research programme. it brings together work on driver behaviour, traffic safety, and human- machine interfacing to review the state of the art in Europe in terms of systems specification, design, evaluation, and implementation for near- future vehicles.; Changes in vehicle functionality will be fundamental through the 1990's, and this book demonstrates that a purely technology driven approach is a recipe for disaster; integrated and co-ordinated multidisciplinary initiatives in complex system design are preferable and are more likely to deliver system efficiency, acceptability, and safety.; It is aimed at transport ergonomists, vehicle designers, HCI researchers, applied psychologists and cognitive ergonomists.

The collected papers are based on the successes of the European research programs DRIVE and PROMETHEUS. Topics include MMI scenarios for the future road service informatics, road user needs, what the vehicle should know about the driver, cyclists' problems, pedestrians' problems (like being soft and squishy), behavioral effects of driver support, intelligent accelerators, navigation and guidance interface design, methods in design and evaluation, and human and technical reliability.
