The Analysis of Perception and Response Characteristics of Typical Intersection Conflicts in Driving Distractions

Distracted driving is an important factor affecting the safety of road intersections. However, the research on driving distractions mostly focuses on high-speed situation and closed sections, and there has been a lack of research on low-speed situations and open sections. Meanwhile, there are few studies on crash or near-crash scenarios. Therefore, the paper chose four kinds of typical intersection conflict scenarios to study the effects of the two most common driver distraction: auditory-cognitive distraction and visual-cognitive distraction on drivers’ perception and reaction to traffic conflicts. Based on the driving simulator, four kinds of typical intersection conflicts were set up and 42 people participated in this experiment. This paper explores the effect of different kind of driver distractions on drivers’ perception and reaction to traffic conflicts using the multi-factor variance analysis with the data collected by an eye tracker, driving simulator, and physiological equipment.
