Samenvatting This book focuses on the study of secondary task demands imposed by in-vehicle devices on the driver while driving. It provides a mechanism for researchers to evaluate how in-vehicle devices such as navigation systems – as well as other devices such as cell phones – affect driver distraction and impact safety. This book, which features the work presented by international experts at the 4th International Driver Metrics Workshop, in June 2008, offers a summary of the current state of driver metrics research. Edited by workshop moderator Dr. Gary L. Rupp, the book introduces vital information to support the design of in-vehicle information and communication systems (IVIS). Topics covered include: Driver object and event detection; Peripheral detection tasks (PDT); Tactile-based detection tasks (TDT); Modified Sternberg method for assessing visual and cognitive load of in-vehicle tasks; Modified Sternberg method for assessing peripheral detection task and lane change tests; The relationship between performance metrics and crash risk; Characterizing driver behaviors observed in naturalist driving studies; Developing metrics from lane change test studies.
