CONTRIBUTION TO THE EXPANSION OF THE DRIVER-VEHICLE-ROAD MODEL IN ROAD PLANNING

EIN BEITRAG ZUR ERWEITERUNG DES MODELLS FUER FAHRER, FAHRZEUG UND STRASSE IN DER STRASSENPLANUNG

This contribution is a dissertation on expanding the driver-vehicle-road model in road planning by giving special attention to individual vehicles and to tracking. The development of road tracking is described by studying dynamic driver motion models and optical tracking. Problems and methods of road planning are discussed. The driver- vehicle-road system is studied as a control system (Regelkreis). The information flow from road to driver is observed. Main research findings: the optical tracking of roads has to be made to follow psychological laws although psychology as yet has offered no solutions for problems of road planning; the information flow on the road should be measured and regulated with the aid of information theory; road design should be evaluated qualitatively by means of the rules of Gestalt psychology. The research findings are applied to practical planning.
