Intelligent Speed Adaptation and driving speed: Effects of different system HMI functionalities

In this paper the authors study driver behaviour changes when driving vehicles equipped with Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) systems. The primary tool used is a driving simulator. Three different ISA human machine interface functionalities are investigated: informative, warning, and intervening. Data were extracted from the simulator along with questionnaires completed by drivers following each drive. Possible impacts of system functionalities on driver behaviour are studied through appropriate metrics including driving speed, speed deviation, frequency and magnitude of speeding and the empirical cumulative distribution function of speeding. Perceived impacts on drivers are investigated to identify driver attitudes towards the systems as well as possible relations between anticipated and measured behaviour. The study indicates that use of ISA systems, in general, results in the adoption of vehicle speeds that are likely to improve road safety. However, it was also found that drivers may misuse ISA systems, potentially resulting in negative road safety effects.
