Determining Opportunities for Overtaking Assistance Combined Efforts of a User Needs Survey and an Interaction Model

With the current developments in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) it is important to stay aware of the needs of car drivers. In this paper, the focus will be on the results of a user needs survey and a model of interaction behaviour. The results of a user needs survey on driver assistance showed that respondents indicated a significant need for support when interacting with other road users. A model of interaction behaviour was used to describe the information processing of a driver during an overtaking manoeuvre on a two-lane rural road. Based on the application of this model together with the results of the user needs survey, an attempt was made to determine the potential positive impact of ADAS on overtaking behavior. For each level of situation awareness, an ADAS functionality was suggested: blind spot warnings, indications of safe overtaking possibilities and warnings in case of an imminent crash. The interaction aspect of driving should be taken into account when developing ADAS applications in order to prevent conflicting expectations, which may lead to unforeseen and dangerous behavior.
