This report summarizes human factors research for IVHS/ITS projects and focuses on the following five tasks:
The comparative evaluation of ITS in-vehicle information prototypes. This experiment compares drivers'
reaction to the use of three forms of in-vehicle information systems in driving simulation: the Delco
prototype, the Volvo Dynaguide prototype, and a procedure that presented a voice generation information
system. It includes recommendations for in-vehicle device designs.
, The evaluation of driver response to an in-vehicle ITS technology. This experiment evaluated drivers'
responses to information presented on an in-vehicle ITS.
Geographic databases for IVHS management. This work extends the concept of relational databases to model
traffic information in an approach that uses abstract data types and triggers.
• The improvement of simulation facilities. This task describes the acquisition and installation of equipment
and software to improve simulation capabilities at the Human Factors Research Laboratory and its impact on
, In-vehicle collision avoidance warning systems for IVHS. This experiment examined the effects of
presenting warnings of vehicle proximity on turn decisions.
