Research on the Correlation between a Driver's Dynamic Visual Field and Driving Speed

Eighty percent of driving information is obtained through vision when a driver is driving a car. The dynamic visual field information is closely linked to the driver's speed-controlling behavior. A video of the dynamic visual field, and information regarding speed when a car is running on the highway in mountainous areas are obtained by a multi-functional device which integrates the function of video collection, global positioning systems (GPS) positioning and recorded speed. Two sections of the entire road are chosen for this experiment. The road information, which is regarded as a dynamic parameter, is extracted from the video. The SPSS software is introduced and analyzes the correlation between the road area in the driver's dynamic visual field and the driving speed. The results show that the driver's dynamic visual field and driving speed have a positive correlation. When the driver's visual field becomes wider, the driving speed increases. It can be concluded that the driver's speed-controlling behavior and his dynamic visual field have a certain relationship.
