COMPARISONS OF DYNAMIC EYE POSITIONS IN A LABORATORY BUCK, STATIC VEHICLE AND ON-THE-ROAD VEHICLE; FINAL REPORT OF PHASES I AND II OF THE SECOND GENERATION EYELLIPSE PROJECT

Data has been collected that can be used to develop eye location distributions for targets on a wide range (from low-seated sports cars to heavy trucks) of vehicle types. These targets are located at various off-center angles. The first phase of the study involved the development of a method to determine drivers' eye locations for lab and on- the-road targets. Details of the second phase, a screening experiment to identify significant factors, are presented. Regression analyses indicated that a drivers height affects the position at which his eyes are located when viewing off-center targets. Statistical tests on the testing environment factor were also significant. Testing repeatability had no systematic effect on drivers' eye locations. Using analyses of variance, the height by sex, height by environment and sex by environment interactions were found to be significant.
