Driver Fatigue and Accidents: Can Visual Sensitivity Predict Drivers' Ability to Drive Safely?
2000 (English)In: Ergonomics for the New Millenium: proceedings of the XIVth Triennial Congress of the International Ergonomics Association and 44th Annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics society, July 29 through August 4, 2000, San Diego, California USA, Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, 2000, Vol. Vol. 3, p. 267-270Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to investigate whether visual sensitivity, defined as the ability to quickly detect and react to a visual stimulus, could be used to predict drivers' ability to drive safely. Ten sleep-deprived and ten alert subjects drove for two hours on a simulation of a motorway, in an advanced driving simulator, and were exposed to a number of critical traffic situations. The results showed that visual sensitivity could predict about 50% of the subjects' variation in lateral position. Implications for the design of a driver support system, based on measurement of visual sensitivity, are discussed.
