Adaptation of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) for Elderly Drivers

高齢運転者を対象とした定速走行車間距離制御装置(ACC)の 受容性に関する研究

The objective of the study is to clarify how driving experience using ACC system affects an elderly driver in adaptation of ADAS. The authors simulated a car platoon including ACC-ON and ACC-OFF vehicles as the drive experience situation in the study on the test track. The drive experience was conducted at the test track with a 2,700m oval track in Tomakomai City, Japan. 32 drivers (aged 65 to 79 years; 11 females and 21 males) participated in the drive experience with ACC system. The drive experience with ACC-ON vehicle increased adaptation of ADAS for Elderly Drivers. Most participants answered positive subjective assessments rather than those before the drive experience of ACC-ON vehicle. However, sudden system-off of ACC system while driving lowered the evaluations on the ADAS vehicle.高齢ドライバの運転支援装置(以降、ADAS)への受容性の変容を実際の運転行動から検討した。試験走路で32名の高齢ドライバにADAS車と非ADAS車でそれぞれ2時間の先行車を追従する運転タスクを課した。ADAS利用へのドライバの受容性の変容をヒアリングと運転行動により分類し、受容性の変化をドライバ特性から明らかにした。
