Purpose and goal
The goal of this research is to get better insight into how to design a cross- regional visual & auditory advisory traffic information system that enhance driving safety. A human-centered design process were applied throughout the process, a series of studies were conducted to understand and specify design requirements in the use context. The data and methods generated from the studies serve as design insights from advisory traffic information systems design.
Expected results and effects
- Designed and developed 9 new testable traffic scenarios in a drive simulator with descriptions and storyboards - Designed and implemented a visual advisory traffic information system called ATIS in STIMSIM drive simulator and a 3D auditory advisory traffic information system called 3DATIS - Evaluated the effectiveness and feasibility of ATIS and 3DATIS in STISIM drive simulators by collecting and analyzing driving data of 78 drivers - Conducted multi-cultural studies between Sweden and China. - Derived guidelines for cross-modalities advisory information design
Planned approach and implementation
The findings showed that to maximize the driver performance outcome with an ATIS, the design has to consider the driving culture where the ATIS is to be used. A number design implications were generated in the project, and a lot of work remains before this can be implemented in real cars, but our results point in a positive direction and show that this will be a worthwhile addition for drivers, increasing driver safety and situation awareness.
