Results of the Coopers Simulator Study: A Comparison of Driver Behaviour in Different Usage Groups /Simulation Results

This paper reports some findings of a driving simulator study carried out within the The European project Co-operative Systems for Intelligent Road Safety (COOPERS) is a new safety related service that utilizes primary infrastructure to vehicle communication that were developed in the project, as well as an onboard unit presenting the services to the driver. The purpose of this driving simulator study was to assess the influence of this onboard unit with some of the services on driver behavior and user acceptance, by comparing driving with versus driving without the services activated. The study with 48 Swedish drivers in VTI´s driving simulator, showed that the tested system had an effect of reducing the driving speed for all tested scenarios and thus a positive effect on traffic safety, which is also supported by the results of the user acceptance study.
