ESTABLISHMENT OF PRINCIPLES CONCERNING INFORMATION LIMTATION IN ROAD SIGNS

AUFSTELLUNG VON GRUNDSAETZEN FUER DIE INFORMATIONSBEGRENZUNG IN DER WEGWEISENDEN BESCHILDERUNG

THE AIM OF LITERATURE ANALYSES AND EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS IS TO ESTABLISH WAYS OF OPTIMISING THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION THROUGH ROAD SIGNS BY MEANS OF LIMITATION, ORGANISATION AND LEARNING PROCESSES. THE TESTS ARE BEING CONDUCTED WITH THE AID OF STANDARDISED PHOTOGRAPHS OF ACTUAL STREET SCENES AND SYNTHETIC LABORATORY SET-UPS. MEASUREMENTS OF REACTION TIME, ACCURACY OF DIRECTIONAL SENSE, GRASP OF THE SITUATION AND EYE MOVEMENTS ARE BEING CARRIED OUT.
