The 13 papers in the volume focus on driver performance and simulation. Human engineering of advanced technology to aid drivers is discussed first: topics include the design of auditory interfaces new to the world of automobiles and the design of vehicle controls and models of human performance to use in evaluating the development of high technology for drivers. Then human behavior in the driving environment is explored in studies of eye scanning and driver work load. Ways to improve information to the driver are examined from the perspective of the vehicle, through the use of daytime running lights, and from sources external to the vehicle, such as broadcasting, signs, and markings. The Record concludes with papers on simulation of vehicle dynamics and motion.
