Duidelijk is dat sommige weggebruikers moeite hebben met het vinden van hun weg in de nieuwe situatie op de Randweg Eindhoven. De vraag is wat de oorzaak is van deze problematiek. Zaken die hierbij mogelijk een rol spelen zijn de begrijpelijkheid van de aangebrachte bewegwijzering, wellicht in samenhang met de lay-out en het precieze wegverloop...

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...

The goal of the present study was to explore how simulator motion cuing affects the driver's control performance of a car. Steering behavior was used as a measure of control performance. The experimental task was a slalom maneuver in which the velocity of the car was limited to 70 km/h. Subjective and objective variables were measured. The paper...

A simulator study was performed to establish the effects of motorway environment complexity on driver distraction and workload. In this study environment complexity refers to the visual complexity of static objects on or next to the road and in its vicinity (e.g. traffic signs, buildings, advertisements…). It does not include traffic density or...

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...

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...

Steer-by-wire systems provide drivers with the opportunity to personalize steering settings in vehicles. Studies conducted in the past have indicated that preferences for steering effort, one of the factors which affect steering feel, vary based on individual differences that include factors such as age, gender and driving style. These...

Connected Cruise Control (CCC) is a system, that is currently under development within a HTAS project. CCC aims to improve throughput in dense motorway traffic by advising drivers how to drive. The advice will integrate a lane advice, a headway advice and speed advice. The CCC advice will be provided via a nomadic device, using input from...

The current study focuses on Change Blindness in a road environment. The purpose of the experiment is to study how the type of change induced affects the strength of Change Blindness and the role of glance duration and attention. Hundred-thirty-one participants watched video films showing six drives around a block filmed from the drivers...

In 2009 a disproportional number of single-vehicle accidents turned out to occur on one carriageway of the Honingerdijk in Rotterdam (in the direction of the city centre). Consequently, a number of measures have been implemented in order to reduce the number and severity of these accidents. These measures, however, should be considered as...

Many automotive innovations affect the driver's task and/or the driving experience. In this paper we argue that successful innovation in these cases requires that due attention is given to Human Factors issues in the course of the innovation process. We support this claim by examples from several recent and ongoing innovation projects. To...

This report provides an overview of methods to prevent drowsy driving of drivers (Wilschut et al., 2009). Several preventive approaches were discussed such as the use of questionnaires, campaigns and fatigue management plans. A search for law enforcement instruments to prevent sleepiness at the wheel did not provide any instruments that could...

Connected Cruise Control (CCC) aims to improve throughput in dense commuter traffic on motorways by advising drivers on speed, headway and lane-use via a nomadic human-machine interface. The advice is generated from a prediction of future traffic flow, based on actual traffic-loop data and is transmitted to the in-car platform via 3.5G...

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...
