ANALYSIS OF PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT AND TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR DRIVING DECISION-MAKING IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS

THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING PROCEDURES TO MEASURE DRIVER DECISION-MAKING PERFORMANCE AND THE FEASIBILITY OF IMPROVING THAT DECISION- MAKING PERFORMANCE THROUGH TRAINING. THE STUDY CONSISTED OF FIVE INTERRELATED TASKS. CRITICAL DRIVING SITUATIONS WERE IDENTIFIED AND DRIVER DECISION-MAKING REQUIREMENTS WERE ANALYZED WITHIN A HUMAN INFORMATION-PROCESSING FRAMEWORK. A REVIEW OF MEASUREMENT DEVICES AND TRAINING TECHNIQUES REVEALED SERIOUS DEFICIENCIES WITH RESPECT TO DECISION MAKING. FOUR SPECIFIC DIMENSIONS WERE IDENTIFIED AS RELATED TO EFFECTIVE DECISION-MAKING. A CLASSIFICATION-TRAINING MODEL WAS DEVELOPED AND RELATED TO A PROBABILISTIC POLICY MAKING COST-BENEFIT MODEL. A COMPREHENSIVE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PLAN IS PROPOSED FOR FOUR SEPARATE GROUPS OF DRIVERS. /NTIS/
