Simultaneous Measurement of a Driver’s Behavior, Gaze and Driving Performance, and Its Application to Inattention Driving

To assist drivers to drive safely, it is essential to detect driver states. Among the driver states, it is important to detect the degradation of attention because many traffic accidents were caused by human error. Among inattention driving, cell phone use while driving a car is attracted considerable attention because smart phone (including usual cellular phone) is becoming widespread rapidly. In this paper, a new method for simultaneously measuring a driver’s behavior by motion capture, eye gaze property by Eyemark recorder and driving performance by driving simulator has been developed in the first place. The method has been applied to verify influence of cell phone use while driving a car. The case of cell phone use while driving and the case of normal driving (no task) were examined in the experiments. Some meaningful differences were obtained in the gaze movement and driving performance between two cases.
