PATH ERROR-NEGLECTION IN STRAIGHT LINE DRIVING
Decision rules, describing how drivers switch from error-neglection to error-correction when approaching the edge of a lane, were derived for a straight lane keeping task. Drivers were instructed to neglect the vehicle path error and to switch over to error-correction only at that moment. The vehicle motion still could comfortably be corrected to prevent a crossing of the lane boundary. The results show that the lateral distance from the lane boundary at which drivers switch to error-correction increases linearly with the lateral approach speed. This mechanism results in a constant time to lane crossing distance at this decision moment, this result being consistant for a broad range of speeds.
