The influence of roadway features on observed lane departure warning response in a simulator

A simulator study was conducted to characterize driver steering responses to lane departure warnings. Drivers were asked to perform a distracting secondary task while their vehicles were occasionally pushed to the side of the roadway to encourage lane departures. Three lane departure warning treatments were investigated: no warning, an auditory warning, and a tactile warning using steering wheel vibration. Overall drivers' corrective steering responses suggested that both the presence of a lane departure warning and characteristics of the roadway environment influenced the magnitude of the steering corrections observed.
