More than half of all severe traffic accidents in which pedestrians or cyclists are involved, occur during road crossing. In this chapter insights, based on previous studies and literature, concerning requirements for safe and comfortable crossing facilities are discussed. In order to develop notions of needs, abilities and motives, different...

In the current chapter we highlight two types of risk that are of importance for pedestrians: the risk of being involved in an accident and the risk of being victim of criminal offences, violence or threats. In most cases it is the latter type of risk that is of importance for pedestrians, and which influences their behaviour. From a theoretical...

Peaks in workload while driving might have immediate safety implications. The Peripheral Detection Task (PDT) has shown to be a sensitive objective workload measure. Drivers have to respond to the onset of a peripherally presented simple visual stimulus (red square or LED) by pressing a finger switch, on average, once every 4 seconds. The more...

The urban expansion, the motorization, the work and shopping concentration in the cities outskirts have caused a constant increase in the travelling distances. Therefore, walking is getting more and more difficult and dangerous. On the other hand, there is a great diversity of pedestrians with different requests or needs when using the urban and...

In this chapter, we propose to outline the scientific area that addresses Ambient Intelligence applications in which not only sensor data, but also knowledge from the human-directed sciences such as biomedical science, neuroscience, and psychological and social sciences is incorporated. This knowledge enables the environment to perform more in...

In the design and development of advanced vehicle control systems such as X-by-Wire (XBW), system safety is a crucial aspect. Failures in XBW can easily result in accidents. Therefore, methods and tools are needed to ensure fault-tolerant systems. Quantifying the consequence of an error is far from trivial, since the consequence is determined...

Steer-by-Wire systems enable designers to offer completely personalized steering feel to drivers, unlike existing steering systems that offer limited or no personalization. In this paper we focus on feedback torque level, a significant factor for steering feel. Earlier studies indicate that the preferred feedback torque level may be related to...

A total of 15 TDs were included as part of HFM-170. These TDs are listed in Figure 1-3, along with the Host country. TDs focused on many critical issues including multi-vehicle control, manned-unmanned teaming, human-automation interaction, telepresence interfaces, delegation interfaces, vehicle hand-offs, operator workload adaptive systems,...

One purpose of Intelligent Vehicles is to improve road safety, throughput, and emissions. However, the predicted effects are not always as large as aimed for. Part of this is due to indirect behavioral changes of drivers, also called behavioral adaptation. Behavioral adaptation (BA) refers to unintended behavior that arises following a change to...

Non-parametric Wilcoxon Matched Pairs tests show that the percentage correct target ID in the Telepresence condition is significantly higher (87.5%) than in both Mono-Joystick (61.5%; p < .05) and Mono-Headtracking (64.6%; p < .005); Mono-Headtracking and MJ do not differ (p = .51). The repeated measures ANOVA on time to target identification...

This underlying report describes how HFM-170 successfully developed and demonstrated pertinent supervisory control human-system interface design practices and operator interface concepts for Uninhabited Vehicles (UVs) network-centric operations. In a series of 14 specific Technology Demonstrations (TDs) it was shown that the operator’s role is...
