PRESSURE AND STRESS ON A VEHICLE DRIVER - REVIEW OF LITERATURE ON THE STATE OF RESEARCH

BELASTUNG UND BEANSPRUCHUNG DES KRAFTFAHRERS - LITERATURUEBERSICHT ZUM STAND DER FORSCHUNG

FROM A REVIEW OF GERMAN AND FOREIGN LITERATURE AND PUBLICATIONS ON THE PSYCHOPHYSICAL PRESSURE ON DRIVERS DURING A JOURNEY THE FACTORS INVESTIGATED ARE SEEN TO BE TRAFFIC DENSITIES, THE HIGHWAY LAYOUT AND DRIVING SPEED; FURTHERMORE, OBSERVATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE ON THE EFFECT OF INDIVIDUAL TRAFFIC SITUATIONS AND THE ACCIDENT DENSITY OF A PARTICULAR SECTION OF ROAD. IN ADDITION THE JOURNEY LENGTH, PSYCHOACTIVE SUBSTANCES SUCH AS ALCOHOL, NICOTINE ETC, PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DRIVER AND PRE-JOURNEY STRESS ARE ALL CONSIDERED TO HAVE INFLUENCE ALTHOUGH THE LAST TWO ARE MENTIONED IN HARDLY ANY PUBLICATIONS. MORE PRECISELY ILLUSTRATED AS PHYSIOLOGICAL INDICATORS ARE HEART-BEAT FREQUENCY AND GALVANIC SKIN-REACTION AND AS PSYCHOLOGICAL INDICATORS THE RESULTS OF ASSOCIATED EXERCISES AND CHANGES IN DRIVING TECHNIQUE.
