Driver's Behavior and Workload Assessment for New In-Vehicle Technologies Design

Innovative technology can induce improvement in road safety, as long as its acceptability and its adequacy are checked, taking into account the diversified driver’s population needs and functional abilities through a Human Centred Design process. Relevant methodology has to be developed in this purpose. Evaluation of the driver’s mental workload is an important parameter, complementary to objective ones such as control of the vehicle and driver’s visual strategies. This paper describes experiments conducted in the framework of the European project AIDE aiming at validating the DALI (Driving Activity Load Index), a tool set up to allow evaluation of mental workload while using in-vehicle systems; the main results and conclusion from this approach are presented.
