Evaluation of Effective Notification for Various Target Vehicle Types on V2V Collision Prevention Support

In order to reduce traffic accidents, driver support applications are being developed using Vehicle-to-vehicle communication systems (V2V) in the EU, US and Japan. Particular in the EC funded DRIVE C2X project, the authors focused on the reduction of motorcycle traffic accidents and developed a driver support application named Motorcycle Approaching Indication (MAI). Aiming to notify about motorcycles properly, they created two hypotheses about HMI method: one that increasing informational content of notification about motorcycles more than other vehicles is effective; and the other that notification timing where drivers can take time to confirm safe conditions about motorcycles more than other vehicles is effective. As a result of the subject evaluation in the situation of crossing collision prevention support using driving simulator, they confirmed acceptability of the first hypothesis and did not clearly distinguish the second hypothesis. The authors confirmed user acceptability by varying the informational content of notification as the method of earlier motorcycle recognition.
