Verification of Effects of Traffic Safety Installations Using NIRS of Brain Functions

This research considers measures to control excessively high and low speeds of cars driving on an expressway using a real road experiment. In 2011, the authors controlled the driver’s sense of speed and other conditions by installing light-emitting devices along the shoulder of an expressway at a certain interval and controlling the patterns of light emitted at random. The effects of guiding drivers visually on an expressway using light-emitting devices have not been fully explained, but it has become clear that using visually induced self-motion perception (hereinafter “vection”) or life’s nature of moving in response to the stimulus of light (hereinafter “phototaxis”) is effective to a certain extent in controlling or recovering vehicle speed.
