Driver Reliability Assessment Based Mental Workload

This paper proposed a driver workload model which incorporates road complexity, driving speed and time constraint in the assessment of driver reliability. The model was tested in an experiment on a virtual test track consisting of curves of various radius using a driving simulator, and drivers drive at the speeds from 30 km/hr to 120 km/hr, as well as speeds mimicking driving scenarios adopted by late drivers. The workload experienced by drivers was measured using a secondary task technique of random number repetition. The result of the experiment accords with many other workload models.
