Driving support systems to encourage safe driving in complex situations: providing information to the driver in a less distracting manner

The premise of driving support systems is to reduce a driver's load and traffic accidents as a whole. However, we feared that such systems can degenerate a driver's ability by causing an overreliance on driving assistance systems consciously and/or unconsciously. Therefore, we produced a pre-reminder system that reduces encounters with accident factors by helping the driver turn their attention back to safe driving methods. We installed the system in a driving simulator and conducted an experiment to assess the system. As a result, the pre-reminder system did work as intended, and the driver's behaviour was focused more on the road, lessening overreliance on road safety systems.
