MAN AS A VEHICLE DRIVER. THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF INFORMATION. THIRD INTERMEDIATE REPORT

DER MENSCH ALS FAHRZEUGFUEHRER - INFORMATIONSAUFNAHME UND -VERARBEITUNG. 3. ZWISCHENBERICHT

THE REPORT ANALYSES INFORMATION WHICH THE DRIVER TAKES IN AND PROCESSES, AND INVESTIGATES THE LIMITS OF DRIVER PERFORMANCE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A REPRESENTATION OF INFORMATION WHICH FITS HUMAN CHARACTERISTICS. QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE RELATIONSHIPS ARE SHOWN BETWEEN THE INFORMATION PROCESSING OF THE DRIVER AND TRAFFIC ENGINEERING PARAMETERS, USING DIFFERENT MEASURING TECHNIQUES. INITIAL RESULTS OF THIS EMPIRICAL INVESTIGATION SHOW THAT PERCEPTION (VISUAL CHANNEL) OF THE INFERIOR DRIVER DEPENDS CHARACTERISTICALLY ON TRAFFIC CONDITIONS IN THE MAIN STREAM. FURTHER IN THE REPORT, THE SENSORY-, MENTAL- AND MOTOR-BEHAVIOUR OF THE DRIVER ARE INVESTIGATED USING AN ACTIVITY ANALYSIS. EFFECTS RESULTING FROM THIS INPUT DATA SERVE AS OUTPUT DATA FOR EVALUATING THOSE DEMANDS ON A DRIVER WHICH CAN BE TOLERATED. AS AN INSIGHT INTO THE DEMANDS PLACED ON A DRIVER AN EXTENSION TO THE USEABLE FIELD OF VISION IS USED FOR WHICH A MEASURING TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. RESULTS MEASURED INDICATE CLEARLY A NARROWING DOWN OF THE USEABLE FIELD OF VISION IN JOURNEYS WITH AN ADDITIONAL TASK AND ALSO IN "CROSSING" SITUATIONS IN TRAFFIC DIRECTLY IN THE REGION OF A CROSSING.
