ADVANCED TRAVELER INFORMATION SYSTEM CAPABILITIES: HUMAN FACTORS RESEARCH NEEDS

As part of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI) program, the Federal Highway Administration investigated the human factors research needs for integrating in-vehicle safety and driver information technologies into usable systems that provide manageable information to the driver. This investigation included a workshop in December 1997 for IVI stakeholders (i.e., universities, automotive manufacturers, vendors, and contractors) and a preliminary assessment of infrastructure and in-vehicle requirements. This flyer summarizes the identified human factors research needs for advanced traveler information system (ATIS) capabilities, one of five configurations of in-vehicle safety and driver information systems. A complete review of the research needs for all five configurations can be found in the final report (FHWA-RD-98-178). The ATIS configuration includes basic collision warning technologies, basic traveler information devices, and driver comfort and convenience devices.
