STUDIES OF THE DRIVER AS A CONTROL ELEMENT (PHASE 3)

THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO STUDY DRIVER RESPONSE AND PERFORMANCE IN FOUR TYPICAL DRIVING TASKS WHILE DRIVING EACH OF FOUR SIMULATED VEHICLES WITH A RANGE OF DYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS. FOR THIS PURPOSE, A DRIVING SIMULATOR WITH A TV-TERRAIN DISPLAY SYSTEM WAS UTILIZED. FIVE YOUNG MALE ENGINEERING STUDENTS, WITH PREVIOUS DRIVING EXPERIENCE, WERE USED AS EXPERIMENTAL SUBJECTS. IN ORDER TO FACILITATE ADDITIONAL ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION, THE COLLECTED DATA HAVE BEEN PRESENTED IN THE FORM OF TABLES AND CHARTS. /AUTHOR/
