An Ecologically Designed Human Machine Interface for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

In this paper, the development and evaluation of an integrated advisory interface for several Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is described. This interface was developed using an Ecological Interface Design (EID) approach and was combined with the type of critical auditory warnings used in vehicles today. The warning combination was evaluated using a medium-fidelity driving simulator. The results suggest that the development of driver interfaces based on EID could benefit by being combined with user-centered design methods to make accurate assumptions on how the design is suitable for end-users. Simulator results also show that participants drove with greater safety margins to lead vehicles and maintained better lateral positioning when driving with the interface, indicating that integrated multiple-level warnings can have a positive effect on driver behavior if correctly designed.
