Non-planar driver's side rear-view mirrors provide a wider field-of-view than planar mirrors, but produce a minified image. A field experiment was conducted to measure the performance of drivers when making lane change decisions based on mirror information. Four mirror types were included: a planar mirror, a spherical convex mirror and two...

Some European drivers have been using different types of convex, driver-side rear-view mirrors which provide a wider field-of-view than flat mirrors, but produce a minified image. With a minified image, some drivers may have difficulty judging distances and approach speeds. To assess the potential benefits and difficulties experienced by...

Fluorescent retroreflective materials increase the brightness of traffic signs. In construction work zones a benefit is expected from the increased conspicuity of fluorescent retroreflective signs. Fluorescent material can be used instead of non-fluorescent materials both for the advance warning signs that indicate the configuration of the...

A study is being conducted to investigate the effects of driver's side rearview mirror types (either flat or nonplanar mirrors) on driver behavior. The study consists of a survey of mirror characteristics, interviews and questionnaires and a field experiment. The present paper gives the results of the first phase of exploratory interviews. A...

A driving simulator study was carried out to study driver behaviour in case of an Automatic Vehicle Guidance (AVG) system. Three types of transfer of control for leaving an automated lane were compared. Furthermore the effect of trust in the automated system on the relationship between AVG headway and driver comfort was investigated. The results...

This paper presented the results of a simulation study on the effects of a special lane for intelligent vehicles on traffic flow on motorways. The intelligent vehicles are equipped with Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC). ICC is an in-car system that automatically maintains a specified speed, taking into account a minimal distance with respect to...

In this paper subjective and objective assessments of vehicle control are illustrated by means of ex-periments concerning manipulation of vehicle dynamics, driver support, and automated driving. Subjective ratings are discussed in relation to objective performance measures.

Automated Vehicle Guidance (AVG) systems are expected to have a major impact on traffic and transport. In order to reap the benefits and offset or avoid the disadvantages of AVG, correct and timely choices will have to be made. The Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Manage-ment, the University of Groningen, SWOV, TNO and TRAIL have...

Automation of road traffic may have a large potential for improving the performance of the traffic system. For the not too distant future, systems that support or automate parts of the driving task will appear on the market. On a longer term fully automated driving on parts of the road network may become possible. The acceptance of automated...

This paper gives an overview of the DRIVE II project ROSES, which aims at improving traffic safety in adverse weather conditions. The ROSES systems consist of in-vehicle safety monitoring and driver support equipment and an infrastructure based central monitoring system which combines inputs on road and weather conditions from various sources to...

In order to make road traffic safe, efficient and clean, more and more use is made of modern information and communication systems. With respect to this tendency the question rises whether automated vehicle guidance (AVG) should form an element of a future traffic system. The present paper discusses this issue. Firstly an overview is given of...
