ERGONOMICS AND THE MODE OF UTILIZATION OF DRIVING AID SYSTEMS

The large-scale introduction of vehicle-borne electronics has made it possible to equip vehicles with new technologies the main purpose of which is to provide driving aids. The function of driving aids is generally to provide drivers with information which was previously not available in the driving workstation. The most important of these systems are the navigational aid systems which will use a vehicle-borne device to provide information about the road system and will offer, among other things, route selection aids and electronic maps. The general use of these systems by ordinary drivers raises certain questions, for example: possible deterioration of the principle task of driving; the real mode of the systems; and the heterogeneity of populations. This paper will look at these questions and outline some basic ideas on the basis of what has been learned about the use of similar systems in industrial environments.
