AUTOMOBILE DRIVER VISUAL SAMPLING STRATEGIES ON SOME DRIVING TASKS

This thesis was submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements of psychology 400 department of psychology, monash university. The research reported here is an examination of the way that drivers sample the road environment, as shown by their use of the above device to get short looks at the road, in the course of performing A number of experimental tasks. The visual interruption technique proved to be a sensitive measure of the attentional demand on the driver during the tasks. The uncertainty model generally predicted the drivers' visual sampling behavior accurately over different levels of task demand, however the model did not account for the anticipation of attentional demand shown by drivers. /TRRL/
