DRIVER ADAPTABILITY AND ACCEPTANCE OF A MULTIFUNCTION CONTROL

This paper reports the results of a two-phase study of steering column mounted multifunction controls. A modified Mercedes Benz multifunction control (MFC) unit was installed in a 1972 Chevrolet station wagon. Control functions included were turn signals, washer, wiper, headlight dimmer, and optical horn. Phase 1 of the study investigated response time, error rates, and learning for this particular MFC. Phase 2 investigated subjective preferences. /GMRL/
