HUMAN FACTORS REQUIREMENTS FOR REAL-TIME MOTORIST INFORMATION DISPLAYS. VOLUME 7. ANALYSIS OF DRIVER REQUIREMENTS FOR INTERCITY TRIPS
The primary objective of this report is to document a systems analysis conducted to determine driver information requirements for intercity trips in freeway corridors when incidents occur on the freeway. The analysis was conducted using a driver task analysis approach that was supplemented with an analysis of information needs during a 1,500-mile trip through six states including travel through eight large cities. Several driver information design issues for real-time visual, audio, and mixed modal displays were identified based on the results of the analysis, a thorough state-of-the-art review, and a questionnaire survey conducted by the Texas Transportation Institute.
